Activity Facilitator at Haviland House

Guild Care

Register your Interest

We are looking for enthusiastic and friendly volunteers to join the Guild Care team as Activity Facilitators.

This opportunity will involve overseeing, supporting, and creating events for the residents at our beautiful care home, Haviland House.

Activities might include baking and icing cakes, arts and crafts, reading, games, reminiscing and chatting, or gardening and walking in the gorgeous grounds surrounding Haviland. We are always open to suggestions of activities, so if you have a special talent, come and lead a class! There is also the opportunity to learn some new skills along with the residents.


Skills

This role is varied and will entail either working solely or working with another volunteer or Guild Care colleague. One day you might be helping a resident play an instrument, and the next you might be knitting!

It would help if an understanding of meaningful activities is already known to you, or if you have a very keen attitude and a willing ‘want’ to learn.

No-one is expected to be fully green-fingered in gardening – or a MasterChef in the kitchen to be able to ice and decorate cakes. This is a fun role with lots of love and laughter to enhance the residents of Haviland’s five households. It may be that just a gentle conversation is needed, and holding someone’s hand, or it may be that a quiz would save the day.

The activity facilitator opportunity would suit someone who has experience of the needs of older people with Dementia and is able to demonstrate their awareness.

Benefits

  • Build confidence and self-esteem.
  • Feel valued and appreciated.
  • Make use of existing skills and give something back to the local community.
