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.

Paul is able to sing a good variety of songs, and we look forward in welcoming him back on 1st October.

What's in the papers?

The Andover Advertiser had lots of local news, and even some stories about us. Rothsay Grange made it into the papers again due to our fantastic BBQ party for residents, staff, friends and family members.

We also got a story in the local paper for being rated as 'Good' by the CQC. We are all so happy to be at this level, and we hosted a party to say thank you to everyone, so grab a paper and have a look!

British Summer Show

We welcomed back the lovely Betsy, who put on a 'British Summer Show' that was themed around the '60s. She sang so many hits and the residents sang along with her too. Betsy always gives us a great show and, in this heat, she did very well with just the two costume changes. The afternoon ended far too quickly, but we gave her a proper Rothsay send-off with lots of cheers and clapping.

Musical Magic

Saturday 21st July saw Rothsay Grange welcome in a new singer, and his name is Ray Martin. Ray sang a good mixture of songs, such as 'Roamin' In The Gloamin'​, 'You Made Me Love You', Side by Side' and many more.

The residents enjoyed singing along with him and clapping their hands in time with the tunes. Ray sings on his own; he has no backing tracks and plays the guitar and the accordion – a very talented man indeed.
