We inspire trust and hope in everyone with our sheer dedication to care

Shiva Mazandarani & Beverley Stewart


We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves our names are Bev & Shiva. We are the Activities Coordinators at The Withins. Our aim is to give you an insight into what our residents do at The Withins with all their spare time…… also we are here to reassure you that we intend to help our residents become and stay as motivated and responsive as possible.

We provide a variety of activities that both mentally and physically stimulate our residents, not all our residents like to join in, some prefer to sit and chat on a one to one basis which is as equally important.

We fully understand that our residents have a lifetime of experience and each individual has their own character, we therefore do not pressurize but sometimes with a little encouragement we find they will participate in our activities.

We have worked at The Withins for 11 years and it pleases us to see that so many have come on leaps and bounds once ourselves and the staff have gained their confidence, they often open up to us and regard us as their friends.
