Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Darren Quinn

My name is Darren and I am the Activities Coordinator here at Cheshire Grange.

Before Barchester, I was self-employed for 15 year as a driver, driving minibuses, limousines and executive cars. I have also been running drum workshops for children and stroke victims across Merseyside. I am currently studying psychology, alongside working at Barchester.

I am looking forward to learning more about the residents and dementia care.

Activities at Cheshire Grange

The activities team are constantly striving to meet the varied needs of everyone who lives in our home, offering a wide range of group and individual social events. There are regular visits from entertainers, along with craft activities, baking, games & puzzle days and pampering sessions, which fill the week. However, we can always find time for outings and just spending that little bit of special time with residents who enjoy the peace and quiet. We aim to bring the activities to the individual, whilst making it a whole home experience.

Anyone for Trifle?

The ladies had a great afternoon rolling up their sleeves and making individual trifles, which were then enjoyed with a nice cup of tea.

Irlam Station

Ladies and gents at Cheshire Grange enjoyed a trip down memory lane when we visited Irlam Railway Station, which has been restored to its former glory, complete with a left luggage office and many original features. The station buffet room was a favourite, as we all enjoyed tea & cakes. This was a special trip for one of the ladies, as she used to catch the train to school and work from this station.

Country Roads

Cheshire Grange regular, Sandra Currie, entertained residents with a wild west-themed singalong. The ladies and gents joined in with 'Rhinestone Cowboy', 'Rawhide' and many other favourites.

Here Comes the Broom

Cheshire Grange took part in Lymm's Scarecrow Trail again this year, and the theme was 'Let's Celebrate', so we had a groom who was a little worse for wear celebrating his forthcoming wedding!

A Brief Encounter

Residents followed in the footsteps of Celia Johnson & Trevor Howard and made the trip to Carnforth Railway Station, which featured in the classic film 'Brief Encounter'. The ladies and gents and some family members enjoyed lunch in the station buffet before wandering around the exhibition and watching some of the film in the cinema.

Gratitude Tree

We had our gratitude tree on display for several weeks, giving residents, families, staff and visitors the chance to write a gratitude leaf to hang on, it giving thanks for something that was important to them. Thanks was expressed for friendship, families, care staff, safety, music, food, cats, dogs and life.
