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!

“Having one option leaves you with no choice, have 2 options is a dilemma but having 3 options gives you choice.”

Being free to make your own choices is so important to maintain our skills and promote independance amongst people of all ages!

With this in mind, this week we introduced our “Grosvenor Express” We filled a shopping trolley to the brim with a variety of things from shampoo to brioche, to nail varnish to pot noodles! All of the things our residents said that they loved.

Each week we will take the Grosvenor Express round to everyone for them to make their own choice of things that they need, or simply just fancy!

The first week went down a treat judging by the empty trolley at the end of the day!
