Activities at our home
Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.
Life at Beaufort Grange Care Home
Steve, who runs art classes every Tuesday, came twice to do a great quiz with some of our residents. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the quiz and our eventual winner was Terry! He accepted to share his prize with the others. Well done Terry!
Pet Therapy at Beaufort
Lola, a resident’s family dog, was our dog therapy for this month. She is full of energy and runs really fast! She used to come and greet our residents before lockdown and they are now beyond excited to see their fluffy friend again.
Dan the Barber
This month, Dan- who is our activity assistant - did a brilliant job as a hairdresser and as a barber. Our residents looked very great after their haircuts and they all loved his work! Well done Dan!
Entertainers are Back!
We were pleased to welcome Cate for an online Zoom concert. She covered some songs from the '50s, '60s and '70s and all our residents enjoyed it. Some even sang, which was really nice to listen to.
Our Piano Star
J. has been playing the piano her whole life and remembers some lovely tunes. She is also a great singer! She can be a bit shy at first but she always ends up playing for other residents.
International Nurses' Day
We celebrated Nurses’ Day with a lot of various and fun activities for our nurses and our residents. Everyone had a lovely time; some residents read a thank you note and we even had a residents’ family thanking our nurses for their hard work via Zoom.
Well done to Nita, who was nominated best nurse of the year!
