Meet our Activities Coordinator, Irene Holmes

I joined Rothsay Grange in July 2013 as a Carer, and worked my way up to the role of Senior Carer. I then decided to join the activities team in October 2015, where I get the pleasure of seeing residents enjoy the activities I provide for them.

Activities at Rothsay Grange

The activities coordinators at Rothsay Grange work 7 days a week to ensure there is a variety of planned group and one to one activities to suit all individual needs. The activities consist of weekly running activities such as chair zumba, Music therapy, an Arts club and many more. We also run a weekly minibus trip to local places of interest giving everyone a chance to have a trip out of the home.

Rothsay Grange also knows how to have a good old tea party alongside some fantastic entertainers and productions that visit the home on a regular basis. Irene and Aimee feel its very important to have the residents that live here to have a fun and fulfilled life and encourage them to attend as many activities as they wish.

Pamper Day

9th May saw Rothsay ladies having a pamper morning with Activities Coordinator, Irene, who is a qualified nail technician and beauty therapist.

The ladies queued up in the coffee lounge and had drinks and some very yummy homemade cakes and biscuits, which were made by the very talented on site chefs.

Time got to us and the lunch trolley arrived, so it had to run on into the afternoon after our chair yoga session. The afternoon went as quick as the morning; the yoga was hard, but very good.

For the Love of Music

On 10th May, we welcomed back to Rothsay Grange firm favourite, Cosmic Sparkle. This time, she brought along an up-and-coming singer who needed to build his confidence up. He will soon be making his mark on Barchester homes, and we all look forward to that day. Well done, Robyn, for taking him under your wing.

The afternoon went so fast, as we were all singing along, clapping our hands and tapping those toes. As always, Cosmic gave us a great afternoon and we look forward to seeing them again on 5th June. If you would like to come along, please do so! You won’t regret it.

Sewing Club

25th April was sewing afternoon and, although not a lot of people attended, it was a laugh trying to get the cotton through the eye for starters. We ended up making some beautiful brooches with the help of a good ol' cuppa tea and some biscuits.

St George's Day

23rd April saw Rothsay Grange slay the dragon in style in recognition of St George's Day.

This day was celebrated by making flags in the morning and then with the fantastic Paul Nicolas. Paul’s voice just makes you want to hear more and takes you away into dream land. He sang good ol' Elvis songs, Cliff Richards and some well-loved classics.
