Yvonne Mulholland, Regional Activities Executive

Yvonne Mulholland joined Ideal Carehomes in May 2016 and is Regional Activities Executive for the Yorkshire area. She covers five homes in this area and works closely with Ideal Carehomes’ other Regional Activities Executives.

Yvonne has a strong passion for giving back to the community and has a particular interest in working with elderly people. She has many years’ experience of working alongside residents from various backgrounds which has allowed her to understand their needs in order to give them a better quality of life. Yvonne has a wide range of knowledge and experience on delivering training workshops that explore the practical, theoretical and meaningful activities for residents to employees in the care sector.

Yvonne’s previous position as an Activities Manager has contributed greatly to her knowledge of the care sector and helped her to develop an understanding of the type of person centred approach that someone with dementia or similar condition would need. Yvonne would consider herself to be a compassionate and caring person who is able to build up a good rapport with residents, their families and the local community. She uses the individual feedback from residents as a central focus to her role, to increase their social interaction and mental stimulation and of course, their enjoyment. She has arranged lots of amazing trips for the Yorkshire residents, including afternoon tea at Betty’s Tea Rooms. Yvonne also arranges various daily activities, and regular pop-up restaurants and speakers.
