Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jane Ritchie

Hi, I am Jane and I am the Head of Activities here at Rose Lodge and have worked here since 2010. I love spending time with residents and their loved ones and getting to know them all.

I am always interested in learning about residents' likes and dislikes and will support then to remain engaged and active.

I would love to meet you and discuss what we can offer at Rose Lodge

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

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
