The pamper day we held on the 6th July was an amazing success and we now have many relaxed and rejuvenated residents. Some service users enjoyed a full manicure and polish, some indulged in a mini facial or head massage, while others enjoyed a simple hand massage. The response was really good from all the residents who took part. We are planning on making this more of a regular activity and will be arranging for this event to take place again in the upcoming weeks. Here are a few photos taken on the day.
During the day at Rotherwood our activities coordinator fits in as many one to one sessions with our service users as possible alongside our weekly set activities. In these one to one sessions many of our residents like to talk about their life experiences and the things they have learned throughout the years.
This week during our one to one sessions we have been taking note of ‘A Few Wise Words’ our residents have had to share. We have had a mixture of responses from some very wise ones to some really funny ones. Below is a small list of some of the things they have had to say:-
- Don’t take yourself too seriously
- Enjoy yourself and have a good time
- Don’t get married
- Pay your bills first
- Don’t worry about being in a care home, its lovely being looked after
These will be displayed in the home for all our residents, their families and visitors to enjoy.
