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.

The Magic Table

We are delighted to announce that we have just had a Magic Table installed, which is an interactive light projector, designed to support residents living with dementia by keeping them engaged through specialised games.

The light projections respond to hand and arm movement, promoting movement, allowing residents to stay stimulated and, most of all, have fun!

You can read more about it on this page.

Community Day

Rothsay Grange got the whole community involved for a day in the gardens. The Co-op, Wyevale Garden Centre, the local school and even the Mayor all came together to help turn part of the garden into a sensory area for residents. They even found time to paint the furniture! Our resident Music Therapist joined in with her guitar and everyone had a sing along to round off the afternoon.

Furry Friends

What a wonderful afternoon we had when the alpacas came to visit. They roamed around the home, even getting into the lift to visit a resident who couldn’t make it down.
