Grace Care Centre had been very busy over the last few days celebrating a various number of events Including Burns night, Fish and Chips Lunch Club, baby showers and birthdays!
It’s wonderful to see how many relationships have come to fruition between the residents at Grace Care Centre and staff members alike. This was clearly on show during a baby shower for carer Allie this past weekend, with residents even making gifts for her and …. well……bump! We all wish Allie and her partner all the best for their next chapter.
As much of the nation celebrated the life and poetry of poet Robert Burns this past burns’ night, our residents enjoyed some traditional haggis, hot totties and for some a wee dram of whiskey! To top the experience off, Grace Care Centre was visited by dance company - ‘Golden Toes’ who range from exercise classes, seated dance classes, dance exhibitions. Music and dance can make a massive difference to someone’s life helping to enforce confidence through social inclusion, helps to keep muscles and joints flexible whilst providing enjoyable engaging mental stimulation.
Grace care centres monthly Fish & Chip Club continues to grow each month. Our last club meeting was so popular we had no more seats available. Our lunches are an enjoyable social event held in a safe, relaxed, and friendly atmosphere allowing members to develop their relationships with staff and residents. It is also a chance to enjoy a few games and quizzes along the way – and of course our Freshly prepared Fish & Chips from our on-site Chef.
