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.

For the Love of Music

The afternoon of 1st October saw us all having a good ol' sing along. Everyone enjoyed refreshments and massive cupcakes were prepared by our Chefs, Dean and Terry. The day was great and everyone sang along to same classic tunes.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

On 28th September, residents at Rothsay had a great afternoon helping to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in their World's Biggest Coffee Morning.

We invited members of the local community along and were also joined by friends and family members for an afternoon of singing, games and refreshments.

Thanks to everyone who joined us!

Pet Therapy

On 10th September, we welcomed Willow, who joined us for a morning of cuddles. Willow belongs to Activities Coordinator, Irene, and comes in twice a week to see the residents – she enjoys it as much as they do!

It was lovely to see how happy residents got when they were feeding her and giving cuddles. It's amazing what animals do for residents here at Rothsay Grange. Some residents have little to no vision, so being able to stroke or hold Willow always brings a big smile to their faces.

Grandparents Day

We asked members of the local community to join us in celebrating Grandparents Day. We hosted a big party and were joined by the Salvation Army. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and, as always, our kitchen team made some fantastic refreshments for everyone to indulge in.

Baking Fun

Residents had lots of fun making some lemon shortbread, with a very delicious outcome. We all had a slice with a cup of tea and we all agreed that they would go well with some ice cream.

West End Garden Centre

We took a trip out to West End Garden Centre and had a great time looking around at all the ornaments and flowers, and buying some displays for the home. We also stopped off at their restaurant for some lunch. Afterwards, we took a look around the hobby craft store.
