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.

Christmas Entertainment

As always, December was a very busy mouth at Rothsay Grange. We were joined by entertainers, who sang the good old songs of Christmas, alongside other great hits. All the residents enjoyed mince pies, cakes and biscuits that were made by our onsite chefs, Dean and Terry.

Solo singer, Cosmic Sparkle, joined us on 19th December. She sang her heart out and gave residents a jolly good time. Robyn always has a chat to each resident as her beloved husband sets up and packs away. As you can see from the picture, residents just love having her here. We can’t wait to have her back in the New Year!

Cosmic Sparkle

On the 10th January we welcomed back Cosmic Sparkle. The residents had great fun with Cosmic. The afternoon went far too quick but even after the tea stopped flowing and the cakes and biscuits were put away, Cosmic Sparkle went to chat with the all the residents, and performed for us on the piano, Kathleen was sat by her and started to sing along so even though Cosmic had finished she got us all singing again! Cosmic Sparkle always puts a sparkle on our day. Joining us again on the 21st March, all guests are welcome to stop by.
