A Peek into Our Recent Activities at Charnley House Care Home in Hyde

At Charnley House Residential Care Home in Hyde, we believe in filling our days with joy, creativity, and a dash of deliciousness. Over the past few weeks, our residents have been engaging in a variety of activities designed to bring smiles, spark creativity, and foster a sense of community. Here’s a glimpse into the fun and heartwarming moments we’ve shared.

Balloon Games: A Burst of Laughter

We kicked off our activities with some fun balloon games. The laughter and excitement filled the air as residents batted balloons back and forth, proving that joy truly knows no age. These games not only provided a lot of laughs but also encouraged gentle physical activity and camaraderie among our residents.

Milkshake and Fruit Afternoon: A Sweet Treat

Our milkshake and fruit afternoon was a refreshing delight. Residents enjoyed custom-making their milkshakes with a variety of fruits and flavours, followed by a healthy and tasty fruit snack. This activity was not just a treat for the taste buds but also a great way to reminisce about favourite flavours and share stories.

Crafting Valentine’s Cards: Spreading Love

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, our residents got creative by crafting beautiful Valentine’s cards. These handmade tokens of affection were not just a way to express love and friendship; they also sparked conversations about cherished memories and loved ones.

Colouring Sessions: A Splash of Creativity

Our colouring sessions offered a peaceful and therapeutic escape, as residents immersed themselves in the world of colours. Focusing on intricate designs and patterns, everyone found a sense of calm and accomplishment in their artwork.

Baking Shortcake: Sweet Scents and Memories

Baking shortcake together brought back nostalgic memories and filled our home with the sweet scent of buttery goodness. Residents enjoyed mixing, rolling, and tasting, resulting in delicious shortcakes that were shared with great pride and joy.

Making Pizzas for National Pizza Day: Chefs in Action

To celebrate National Pizza Day, our residents turned into pizza chefs, crafting their own pizzas with a variety of toppings. This activity was not just about making pizzas but about celebrating individual tastes and enjoying the fruits of our labour together.

At Charnley House, these activities are more than just pastimes. They are opportunities for our residents to engage, connect, and create new memories. Each laugh shared, card crafted, and pizza baked is a testament to the vibrant community spirit that makes Charnley House a truly special place to call home.

Stay tuned for more stories and updates from Charnley House, where every day is an opportunity to celebrate life and the connections that make it meaningful.

May Activities At Charnley House

As always, it’s non stop around here, so we thought we’d have a relaxing PJ Day with the residents. Nothing but some good lounging around and chatting, in our pyjamas!!

We’ve been busily drawing round our hands and colouring them in for our hand tree.

And played a “mystery box” game, where residents had to guess what items were in the box by feeling with their hands.

Two of our ladies have celebrated their birthdays, with cake and lots of cards and presents.

And we’ve been cooking up a storm of biscuits on our baking day!

And finally, one particular resident likes nothing more than sneaking off outside and doing some gardening. Looks like we caught him green handed this time!

Last Month At Charnley House Care Home in Hyde

We’ve had lots of celebrations and activities in the last month here at Charnley House care home in Hyde. 

Our residents have been busy colouring for our nursery rhyme wall.

We’ve been off down the river on a boat trip in the lovely weather and everyone enjoyed a lollipop. We even happened upon a pair of geese and their goslings!

We’ve had a very special birthday. 100 years to be exact! Which prompted a letter from the Queen and some very fancy 100th Birthday balloons and decorations and a special 100th Birthday cake.

Finally, we had a real party atmosphere for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. We decorated Charnley House with flags, bunting and balloons and had a party tea with an amazing Jubilee cake. Everyone had a flag to wave whilst we watched the many events on the television.
