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!
Life at Rose Lodge Care Home
Knit & Natter
On September 10th, residents joined in knit & natter, knitting squares to make blankets. Our residents use the blankets when they have a garden visits from loved ones.
On the sixth of August we went outside into our garden to do a bit of bird watching. We took a bird guide, two pairs of binoculars and, of course, snacks.
On Monday 3rd August, residents on Memory Lane enjoyed playing animal bingo!
For friendship day, some of our residents made some beautiful hand-made cards that they got to write in and send to friends and family members.
Virtual Dog Show
At the start of the month, we began a Virtual Dog show, wherein families, staff and residents alike can enter their pet pooches for the Rose Lodge Virtual Dog Show!
The residents voted for the best dog on the 20th of July. The winner got a little hamper filled with treats for the winning dog.
And this 1st prize winner this year was: Bonnie.
2nd prize was: Larry
3rd prize was: Coco
On Thursday 16th July, residents painted pebbles for our local community. These pebbles will go to our local church. Our residents wanted to give something back to our church ladies for giving us a church service, and the pebbles will go on display in the church.
