Lifestyle at Grangewood Lodge

Our aim at Grangewood Lodge is to provide a happy relaxed and friendly atmosphere offering sanctuary from anxiety and stress enabling residents to enjoy a high quality of life in a unique setting.

We recognise the necessity for residents to feel completely relaxed and at home. Accordingly, residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and personal possessions to make their room as familiar and homely as possible.

Social Activities

At Grangewood Lodge, we prioritize the unique essence and worth of our residents, ensuring their dignity and individuality are treasured and respected. The Lodge fosters an atmosphere where each resident is perceived as an integral part of the community, with their individual needs, talents, and capacities being closely monitored and encouraged.

Our mission at Grangewood Lodge is to not only provide care but also to foster an engaging lifestyle for our residents. An entertainment coordinator is dedicated to creating a lively and interactive atmosphere, tailoring activities to our residents’ varied interests. These engagements span reminiscence sessions, bingo games, card and board games, quizzes, manicures, and foot spas. The melody of our electronic organ resonates throughout the main sitting room, offering regular musical therapy to residents. Furthermore, our expansive large print and video film libraries cater to the intellectual curiosity and entertainment of our residents.

In addition to in-house activities, we facilitate individual and small group outings to local pubs, pantomimes, and other nearby amenities. We place considerable emphasis on the key worker system, which offers personalized one-on-one outings. We value the emotional support and familiarity provided by relatives and friends and actively encourage them to accompany our residents on these excursions.

Celebrations are an integral part of life at Grangewood. We acknowledge all significant events, from personal milestones like birthdays to communal celebrations, including Easter, Christmas, Halloween, Bonfire Night, royal celebrations, and remembrance days, ensuring every resident feels included and cherished.

Clothes shows are a quarterly event, providing residents with the opportunity to browse or purchase attire, adding an element of everyday normality and choice to their lives.

Spiritual needs are also catered to, with Church of England Services held monthly and holy communion regularly celebrated. Ministers from other denominations are available to visit as necessary, ensuring the spiritual well-being of all residents.

Community integration is crucial to us, as showcased by our yearly fete, which not only brings everyone together but also raises funds for the amenities. We also host periodic coffee mornings, fostering a warm sense of community within the Lodge.

Every aspect of life at Grangewood Lodge is designed to promote a comfortable, engaging, and dignified lifestyle for our residents, making it more than a care home – a true home.
