Two student nurses from UWS Dumfries Campus came along to visit Alma as part of their university project looking at promoting physical activity. The students researched literature to see what activities have been researched as being beneficial to the older generation that would benefit all or at least most individuals at Alma house and then came along and carried out these activities with an interactive session of various exercise activities. This has been the 3rd year we have supported the students who are ever so grateful for our support. Our residents had a fun filled afternoon.
February has been a very busy month in the care home from Chinese New Year to spreading the love for Valentine’s Day with much more planned for the upcoming months so watch this space.
Welcome to our February newsletter, hopefully this will give you a little insight into some of the things we get up to and how we spend some of our time here at The Grange. Below are some of the things we’ve enjoyed so far
Well what a month it has been! Jayne and I would like to thank everyone for being so supportive and welcoming for our first month at Bonchester Care Centre. We both feel we are part of the Bonchester family!
I would like to start by welcoming our new manager Susan Gibson to the home and wish her well during her time with us. Hopefully it will be a long one. We have already seen some huge changes to the home, and we note that she has a fantastic sense of humour also. (Much needed) haha. Welcome Susan.
We have been using the Karaoke machine in which our residents have been enjoying. Singing along to old songs that the residents used to like when they were younger and some of the songs made them reminisce from their younger days. Singing and listening to songs made them talk about all different memories that they had made.
BROWN Clee CE Primary School in Ditton Priors has teamed up with a local care home, to bring together children from the school and the residents in Ditton Priors Care Home, with the aim of mutually benefitting all.
Residents at Alma House were kindly invited to Dalbeattie Primary School to watch their Primary ½ School Play. The residents enjoyed there afternoon and were very impressed by the children’s performance.
