A longstanding Activities Coordinator celebrated her birthday with residents of the care home where she has worked for over a decade.
Krissy Grant, who turned 37 on the 11th of January, was joined by residents of Earsdon Grange care home, Whitley Bay, at her birthday tea party who sang her ‘Happy Birthday’ and enjoyed sharing a white chocolate and sponge birthday cake over tea and coffee.
Mrs Grant who has worked at Earsdon Grange, a residential home for the elderly and people living with dementia, since 2006 said that her proudest moment was being named as a national finalist in the 2015 MMCG and Countrywide Care Awards in the ‘Most innovative Activities Programme’ category.
Since her time working at Earsdon Grange she has worked hard to continually develop and expand the activities programme within the home, arrange regular outings, and work with local community groups to ensure residents continue to play an active part in the local community. During her 10 years of service Krissy has launched a very popular Wednesday morning coffee morning at the home and recently started a befriending club, dubbed the Silver Social, for older people in the community who wish to join in with activities and events at the home.
She Said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my birthday tea party and celebrating the day with our residents made it even more special. I’ve always loved my job, my aim is to put a smile on everyone’s face by the end of each day.”
