Ever wondered what a resident’s day looked like at Manor Grange? Below we have shared a typical day at Manor Grange Care Home, detailing just some of the variety of things residents get up to over the course of their day.
Residents can choose from a range of breakfast options every morning, from a continental breakfast to a full English. Residents can eat in the dining room with company or in the comfort of their own rooms.
Virtual Church Services In Our Cinema Room
Most Sunday mornings, we aim to hold virtual church services for our residents to participate in, which take place on our cinema screen. This enables residents to have their spiritual needs met in the comfort of their own home.
‘Message in a Bottle’ Activity
Residents have started writing their own ‘message in a bottle’ which will contain some words of wisdom and be displayed at the main entrance of our care home. We look forward to reading them.
A Visit From our Mascot – Mr. Bear
Mr. Bear (Manor Grange’s mascot) does weekly visits around our home, greeting our residents to brighten up their day, giving them affection and encouraging them to participate in our varied activities programme.
Residents are invited to join in with our group’s daily exercise. This is carried out inside of our home and led by one of our Activity Coordinators. It’s a great way of ensuring everyone keeps active and social and offers both physical and mental health benefits.
We like to offer our residents a varied menu for lunches and dinners day-to-day. Sometimes lunches will consist of toasties and sandwiches, with salad and of course some dessert such as brownies and shortbread to finish. Lunches can be eaten in the bar, our dining rooms, or even in the garden on a nice day.
Arts & Crafts
Arts & crafts are a regular occurrence here at Manor Grange. Residents participate in a range of craft sessions, such as watercolour painting. We believe that offering arts & crafts helps residents to relax, improve their cognition and thinking, socialise with others and feel a sense of achievement.
Family & Friends Come to Visit Loved Ones
Residents are welcome and encouraged at any time to visit their loved ones. We even invite them to get involved in any activity taking place in the home at the time or to make use of our private dining room if they wish to celebrate a special occasion. May enjoyed a visit from her son and daughter-in-law and had a lovely catch-up.
Toulouse The Black Labrador Greets Residents
Residents are always delighted when we welcome dogs into the home. Toulouse, the black lab recently visited and the residents gave him some well-deserved love and affection, feeding him a few dog biscuits which we think Toulouse really enjoyed too!
With thanks to our hair & beauty salon, our residents have the option to be pampered with beauty treatments and hair cuts, courtesy of our fantastic therapists and hairdressers.
Dinner time is a special time here at Manor Grange. It gives residents the opportunity to come together in a social setting, indulge in the delightful cuisine our chef and kitchen staff have created, and talk about the events of the day. Residents are also welcome to eat in their rooms if they prefer to.
An Evening of Fun
Residents can unwind in many ways in the evening. With choices such as watching a classic film or some sport in our cinema room, or enjoying a glass of bubbly and some bingo, we truly aim to provide something for everyone at Manor Grange.
We highly encourage all our residents to get involved with life at Manor Grange as much as possible, however, it is most important to us that they feel free to live their lives exactly the way they want to. If residents prefer to do something else with their time like reading a book quietly in our library or taking a stroll around our gardens, then we encourage them very much to do that too.
