Meet our Activities Coordinator, Gillian Conway
Gill has worked for South Grange since 1996. Gill's role in the home is ensuring our residents enjoy a fulfilling quality of life. The programme that Gill and her team (Sheena, Vicky and Karon) provide is stimulating, creative and varied. Gill enjoys the time she spends with residents and families. The team welcomes any suggestions made by residents and family members in relation to activities.
Activities at South Grange
Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.
