Activities at Middletown Grange
We aim to provide a variety of activities that will both mentally and physically stimulate the people we support. Residents have a range of different needs and interests, and it is crucial that these are reflected in the activities available, so that each individual is able to participate to the best of their ability. We organise both group and individual social events that everyone is welcome to take part in; there is a weekly outing to local places of interest, including the garden centre and the local farms, parks and museums. In addition, we enjoy regular visits from entertainers and even exotic animals. We also host events such as 'Beach Day' that relatives and friends are encouraged to participate in. Getting involved in charities is a big part of our ethos, so events such as 'PJs for Pudsey' and pirate-themed days are regularly hosted to raise money for different foundations, including the Alzheimer’s Society.
Activities and Events Partnerships
As part of our bespoke life-enrichment programmes, we host a number of live virtual events in the home on a regular basis through a number of partnerships with places of interest and world class performance companies

ABBAlutely fantastic pantomime
Thankfully the weather kept fine, and the storm clouds passed on Wednesday for our residents outdoor performance from the tickled pink team with the ‘ABBAlutely fantastic pantomime’
The performers arrived dressed in their glitzy sequinned costumes, and sang songs from ABBA and the top 70s hits! Everyone enjoyed the performance; singing and dancing along from start to finish.
The day was made extra special for several of our residents, with their visiting family members arriving just as the show began.
After a busy morning of looking back on America's history surrounding the 4th of July, we too took time to celebrate. Some of our ladies had an afternoon of cupcake decorating, before enjoying one with a nice cup of tea. We think they look great and tasted yummy too!

The Middletown Grange residents are Wimbledon ready!
We had a marvellous morning looking back over previous Wimbledon matches, from John McEnroe’s tantrums with Boris Becker, to the elegance of Virginia Wade and Sue Barker.
All before settling down in front of the TV screen to watch the opening of Wimbledon for this year with the obligatory; strawberries and cream, and of course some fizz!
Come on Andy Murray, we’re all routing for you.
Meet Our Manager Day
Our 'open day' event on Saturday went so well. We'd like to thank all those who attended, and took the time to chat with our home manager; Clem and the team. It was an absolute pleasure being able to showcase our beautiful home, and get to know you.
We were so fortunate with the weather; as the rhythmic tunes filled our gardens courtesy of Alan Hook and his Saxophone, our residents and guests enjoyed a boogie and the odd ice cream or two!
Unable to attend? If you would still like to visit our home and meet with Clem, please do give us a call on 01993 627002 to book a show round and have a chat about later life care for you, or your loved one.

Thankfully the weather kept fine, and the storm clouds passed on Thursday for our residents outdoor performance from the wonderful Fiona Harrison - A Voice in a Million.
Beautiful Fiona arrived dressed in her vintage outfit, and sang songs from the 50s and 60s. Everyone enjoyed her performance; singing and dancing along from start to finish.
