Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at St Wilfrid’s Priory. We have a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

We are also fortunate to have the support of many volunteers of all ages from the local community, strengthening our links to this thriving market town. Here is a sample of activities on offer:

  • Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
  • Visit from Pets as Therapy Dogs
  • Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba
  • Fun activities with ‘Messy Miniatures’, the local toddler group
  • Board game competitions and quizzes

With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.

And that’s not all:

We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more.

Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

We also organise regular events to meet potential residents and for all to join in with:

Meet the team

Home Manager

St Wilfrids is a small home of 23 rooms nestling within the tranquil grounds of Arundel Castle this allows us to offer a very homely feel to the home and to deliver an exceptional person centred service.

The care is made up from a dedicated and truly remarkable team who regularly go beyond expectations for the benefit of those who live with us.

I have been the Home Manager here since 7 October 2013 since leaving Shaw healthcare whom I had worked for for many years.

I have worked in the care industry for over 20 years working within the fields of Adults with learning disabilities and elderly frail care before finally settling within the Dementia care service.

My previous role was Managing a Dementia setting for 30 people and 30 Elderly frail residents within an 80 bedded home with nursing.

I have recently completed my Diploma level 5 and have gained qualifications for Dementia care end of life care and Dementia care mapping. In 2012 I was nominated for the National Dementia awards where I managed to secure a place in the last 3.

In 2013 I was nominated for a Star Award by residents their families and my staff team hosted by my previous employer Shaw healthcare where I won the Regional and National awards.

My passion comes from a drive to make a difference however small that difference may be.
