Woodley Grange Open Day 2017

Romsey, June 16, 2017– Woodley Grange Care Home was visited by Caroline Nokes MP for Romsey and Southampton North

and Councillor Dorothy Baverstock from Test Valley Borough Council (Romsey, Cupernham) for the Open Day event organized for the local Community.

Families and friends of residents turned up in good numbers with all Staff in attendance, who thoroughly enjoyed the day, tending loving care but with light hearted fun all around the Home. A glorious day for the Residents and visitors to enjoy the Open Day at Woodley Grange Care Home held on Friday 16th June 2017 between 1.30 pm – 4.30 pm. A 1920’s theme was created with entertainers dressed up to reflect the period and a pianist played to the theme. High Tea and home baked Cakes were served.

In particular focus was, the display of the fabulous and creative art and craft, that had been made by the Residents themselves. It highlighted how much potential there is within the Residents and requires diligent Activity organisers to recognise it. Karen, the Activity Head is passionate and uses all her skills to work with the Residents and encourage them to bring latent skills to the fore.

Visitors were taken around the Home to view the various areas of activity and facilities which provide a homely environment and the idea to send personal invites to the Residents made them feel honoured and special. Residents were particularly delighted and interacted well with MP Caroline Nokes & Councillor Dorothy Baverstock
Woodley Grange Care Home is in a very pleasant rural surround and the location is ideal to reach from any direction of Romsey.
