Meet the Activities team at Asquith Hall

The current staff team are led by our Activities Co-ordinator Lindsey Foster, supported by Leanne Woodrup and Howard Jones. They all have experiences in care and transfer these skills to work with our residents. Additionally they have all done external training in activity therapy and have learning in Dementia Care and Positive Mental Health. They have recently completed Aqua Hydrotherapy training and offer a wealth of individuality and creativity.
