Care Home Activities at Grosvenor House

At Grosvenor House, we feel it is important that all our residents or elderly day-care visitors are both mentally and physically stimulated each day. That’s why we put together a weekly timetable of regular activities to suit all needs and tastes. Residents have the option to be involved as little or often as they feel suitable and even family members are welcome to join in. The range of care home activities available are physical, social, creative, sensory, intellectual and reminiscence activities.

Being social

Our on-site coffee shop is open to both residents and visitors; including family and friends of Grosvenor House. We feel it is important for our elderly residents to still experience a normal lifestyle, where socialising with different ages and backgrounds is the norm.

Within the coffee shop, we have a range of activities and literature ranging from newspapers, fiction and non-fiction books, board games dominoes and magazines.

Being active

Every week we hold dance classes for everyone to get involved in. While some are less mobile than others, we also offer a range of armchair exercises which is not only great fun for everyone to get involved in. It can also have many health benefits, so example easing aches and pains and helping to rebuild muscles.

We also offer bowling, bowls and other light indoor sports which encourages participation from all – we even start to see some competitive natures!

Being creative

Keeping the mind active and staying creative through old age is essential to wellbeing. We have a range of different craft activities for our residents and visitors to engage with.

We have also set up our WeEngage model, we use an Ipad with our residents to capture their current interests, hobbies imaginations; these can then be reflected right in front of them to get involved with. The list is endless but can include anything from music, pottery, singing, poetry, design to sensory stimulation.

Celebrating events

It is important for everyone at Grosvenor House to stay abreast with the real world and getting involved with events is a great way to do this. We really go to town on national celebrations such as VE day and even Easter and Christmas.

We try to make the residents experience as true to ‘normal’ life, so lighting up the BBQ on nice days and mimicking a day out at the beach is all part of their experience with us.

“We get all the good stuff!” – Margaret, Grosvenor House resident.

The local ice cream van often stops off in our car park on nice days, giving our residents the option for a sweet treat!

Everyone say hello to Jess and Daisy!

They are 2 of our fantastic care team which have began their journey to become Nurse Associates! They will be working alongside our brilliant nurses to provide first class care within our home.

We are so excited to see where this journey takes them and we are so lucky to have them as part of Our Grosvenor House Family!

It has been a long time since we have posted to our Facebook page and what a better way to break the silence than to share an update on our new arrivals!

Our 3 Pygmy goats will be arriving very soon and we are so excited to meet them.

Preparations for their new home are well underway and we cannot wait to see the results!

What do you all think of their names which were chosen by vote by our residents? Personally, we love them!
