I can’t thank you enough for recommending CM , she is fantastic and doing a brilliant job. Anna you’re my cherub!
Shaina Kumar, Home Manager, Palm Court Nursing Home, Eastbourne, November 2019
Anna is absolutely incredible with the residents at Lennox lodge – Anna originally came to us once a month but due to our residents request Anna now comes every other Wednesday! The residents now know Anna really well, as well as Anna having a great relationship with their residents and having a good understanding of their individual needs. Absolutely 100% recommend Anna
Natasha Stevens, Home Manager, Lennox Lodge, Bexhill, October 2019
Anna engaged with each individual in the session. She provided a energetic and meaningful session. She was quick to adapt the session where necessary and motivated all those involved. With competitive prices and great energy, we would highly recommend.
Naomi Scott, Home Manager, Streatfeild House, St Leonards on Sea, October 2019
Anna is a lovely, enthusiastic and passionate person. The residents at Bryher Court thoroughly enjoy the Golden Activity sessions and look forward to Anna coming in each month. She even manages to get some of the quieter residents to join in and they love seeing and discussing some of the reminiscent materials she brings in. Thank you Anna for all that you do!
Charlotte O’Callaghan, Activities Co-ordinator, Bryher Court, St Leonards on Sea, October 2019
Anna is a fantastic asset for our service and clients, I would thoroughly recommend her for other services looking to focus on well being and outcomes for their services.
Tara Cross, Home Manager, Mulberry House, St Leonards on Sea, May 2019
Just had our first session with Anna, at Manor Hall Nursing home, and we cannot wait to have her back again. Anna includes everyone in her session, no one is left out and it’s amazing to see those with dementia come out of themselves to interact with her. What a lovely lady you are Anna, thank you from myself and the residents at Manor Hall!
Kate Sorrenti, Activities Co-ordinator, Manor Hall Nursing Home, Eastbourne, May 2019
I always take my mum to visit my dad at Pentlow on a Thursday afternoon. This is because I know that Anna will be there with her Golden Activities ensuring that all the residents can be involved. They take part in quizzes, choose their favourite music and listen to poems. Each session is tailored to the interests of the residents. We have a wonderful hour and it always goes too fast. Thank you Anna.
Chris King, Resident’s Daughter, Pentlow Nursing Home, Eastbourne, May 2019
We all look forward to our weekly visit from Anna she is always happy and the residents love her. She is very good at adapting to the individual needs of our residents in a group session making everyone feel included. But most importantly she makes the residents happy with her good fun and positive attitude.
Kimberley Mann, Lifestyle Co-ordinator, Hastings Court, Hastings May 2019
Golden Activities visited our centre on a number of occasions…Anna was an instant success. Our centre offered support to older people over 55 with a range of needs for example Dementia, Learning Disabilities and those who were recovering from Strokes. Anna was able to engage with all. She always arrived on time full of energy and delivered fun, captivating, exciting and interesting sessions. We certainly would recommended her to other providers – great addition to any service.
Carleton Astley, Centre Manager, Isabel Blackman Centre, Hastings, April 2019
Anna has come several times to Dudwell St Mary to deliver innovative and meaningful activities to our residents and also to support our activity team in learning new approaches in reminiscing. She always delivers excellent activities and interacts with residents and team members very well. We are Proud to work with her and our residents enjoy her visits very much!
Patrick McCrossan, Home Manager, Barchester Dudwell St Mary, Etchingham, January 2019
Anna brings such enthusiasm to every session and adapts to individual needs always so much fun and now a regular visitor to Peterhouse.
Naomi Scott, Activities Co-ordinator, Peterhouse Retirement Complex, Bexhill, January 2019

Sue Salim, Home Manger, St.Nectans Residential Care Home, Bexhill, December 2018
Anna is one of those special people that just intuitively know what to do and how to connect with people. She has a passion for her work and it shines through. Anna comes to the dementia unit that I work in and is an absolute gem! She brings all she is to her work and I unreservedly recommend Golden Activities to anyone who wants to enhance the lives of the people they care for.
Dave Williams, RGN Nurse, Ashridge Court Care Centre, Bexhill, October 2018
Anna joined us recently for a session of poetry, music and reminiscence therapy. All of the residents who attended had a very enjoyable afternoon. A highlight for many was looking through photographs that brought back childhood memories. Anna made sure every resident was included and made the session personal to everyone. We highly recommend Anna and are very much looking forward to the next session!
Sian Elder, Activities Co-ordinator, The Laurels Nursing Home, Hastings, October 2018
Golden Activities came to the Taplin Centre in September. Anna has a full package of Activities for our service users. She involved everyone & kept everyone’s attention & brought back many memories. Our service users enjoyed the afternoon spent with Anna & we will be booking her again.
Barbara McTaggart, Activities Co-ordinator, The John Taplin Centre, St Leonards on Sea, October 2018
Anna frequently visits our residents at Lennox Lodge, they thoroughly enjoy the visits and having spent time myself in the sessions, we will not hesitate to book again. Anna has a bright and bubbly personality and always brings the sunshine in with her.
Kayleigh White, Lennox Lodge, Bexhill, September 2018

Anna visited our care home and really engaged with the residents well. I would have no hesitation in having her come to a group of people of any age to share memories and feelings.
Alison Jarmain, Activities Co-ordinator, Birkin Lodge, Brighterkind, Tunbridge Wells, June 2018
Anna comes once a week & does Chair Exercises with my husband who is 92. This is excellent for someone who is beginning to be immobile. Anna has a wonderful personality & he is all smiles whilst she is here.

Thank you Anna and your team for a fantastic afternoon.
Our ladies had a wonderful time and really appreciated the poetry and reminiscence. They said they couldn’t believe they had such a lovely time AND gone home with a raffle prize each too!
I would highly recommend the afternoon to anyone else who wanted to have a fun filled time with lovely people.

Thanks Anna, We will defo be back and can’t wait for your visit and will defo recommend you to others. See you soon
Hannah Deeprose – MHA Richmond, Bexhill, May 2018
Anna Gillett has introduced our residents to Golden Activities. This has proved to be an instant hit with our residents. Our staff who were overseeing the session reported that even the most reluctant of people were engaged with the reminiscence session. Green Bank will definitely continue to use Anna’s undoubted flair. Reminiscence tends to be sorely neglected in activities but Golden Activities uses this as it’s bulwark and wins hands down.
