Garden Development

April 1, 2011

I am very pleased at the quality and progress of the flowers we have in The Grange’s garden this year. Already we have most beds full of colour and variety. I must congratulate Batista the Handyman/Gardener for all his tremendous effort and skills, he truely does have green fingers.

I posted a blog last year about the new greenhouse for residents to particiapte with the potting and care for the plants, and I am very pleased with the progress and effort made by all our residents. I have uploaded a photo for everyone to see of the outside patio beds and greenhouse.

The Grange is holding a ‘Dignity in Care’ day in line with the national Dignity Day on Friday 25th February.

Several members of staff are giving up their day off to take residents out to the local cafe for morning coffee, walks along the adjoining river Thames, lunch at one of the local pub restaurants and to the Chiltern Wyevale Garden Centre in the afternoon.

Magda is also spending the morning in the lounge, giving out hand massages to anyone that wants to be pampered.

Halloween

December 1, 2010

We thought we would do something different here at The Grange & Lyndhurst this year and decorate the houses for Halloween!

It was a mad dash to buy out the local supermarket of most of its Halloween Decorations but it paid off. The Lounges and Dining Rooms were covered in spooky spiders and creepy insects, not to mention all the pumpkins that the Residents had previously carved.

British Theme Food Week

November 7, 2010

The Grange has decided that between 15 – 21 November, We will hold a British Themed Week for the whole menu. I am hoping it will be a success and that maybe in the future it is something we can do often. It brings variety to the menu and the residents lives. I am hoping to prepare dishes that reflect what the Ladies & Gentlemen would have cooked at home. So far I have all the basics covered such as; Cottage Pie, Haggis, Hot Pot, Apple Pie and many more British Classics.

I am hoping the residents will enjoy it and it will be something we can continue with at both homes in to the future.
