Introducing the Winner of NAPA’s Activity Leadership Award, Mr Chris Guest.

Ever since his arrival at Blenheim House Care Home in Melksham, Chris Guest, our wonderful Lifestyle and Community Liaison Lead has always gone above and beyond to make sure that the resident activities are truly one of a kind!

He’s introduced innovative, stimulating and engaging activities and at the forefront of these are what Chris calls ‘Resident-led” activities’.

Dedicated to creating personalised memories, “Resident-led” activities always begin with Chris and his wonderful team taking the time to learn life histories, passions & hobbies, past, present or desired…each journey begins with a conversation, a shared memory and laughter.

Through sharing memories & passions, a relationship is created and true friendships develop, enabling Chris and the activities team to create a unique ‘resident-led’ experience, that is often shared and enjoyed by everyone in the Blenheim House community.
