June Update from Charnley House Residential Care Home, Hyde

It’s been all go here at Charnley House residential nursing home in Hyde over the past few weeks!

The residents have enjoyed time interacting with Newton the cat, which was donated by the Rotary Club of Hyde.  The lifelike cat toy purrs, cleans his paws and turns on his back for a belly rub.

We’ve been for a great day out where we sailed on a canal boat from Marple to Poynton, enjoying the views along the way. There was even time for ice cream, which everyone enjoyed very much, as you can see!

The residents have been showing their artistic side with some lovely colouring of summer flowers, and we’ve had a little bit of a pamper day where some of our ladies had their nails painted.

The Cat With No Name and Activities At Charnley House

Our residents have been enjoying the company of a lifelike toy cat! The cat has been donated by The Rotary club of Hyde. He purrs, cleans his paws and turns on his back for a belly rub. He has settled in really well and the residents love him The only thing is, he needs a name! We have asked all the residents what they would like him to be called and all of the names will be going in a hat and drawn at random. The name will be revealed soon.

We’ve been able to have some visits recently, which have gone down very well after such a long time with no relatives allowed. Our residents have also been enjoying games of soft ball. As you can see, it’s a highly contested sport!

March Activities at Charnley House Care Home In Hyde

Our residents have had a lovely, and very busy, time over the last few weeks.

We’ve been making Easter bonnets and having an Easter bonnet competition. Best bonnet wins a large Easter egg, so you can imagine, the competition was fierce!

We’ve had plenty of other activities going on as well, from arts and crafts to games afternoons and dancing.

We’ve had chat time, which everyone enjoys, where our activities co-ordinator spends one to one time with each resident just having a good old natter.

And we’ve had visits from family members who are seeing their loved ones for the first time in many months.

Our dedicated team have also had their Covid vaccines. They are all now a #VaccineHero!

A Fun & Busy January At Charnley House Care Home Hyde

We’ve had a busy few weeks here at Charnley House care home in Hyde.

Our residents have had great fun getting to know their inner artist at our art class and absolutely loved the recent 60’s themed day, where everyone got to dress up and sing along. We even had a range of musical props, which everyone found very amusing! The residents had also made some decorative artwork for the walls especially for the event.

As spring is approaching, we thought we’d better get our green fingers out, so we had a Daffodil potting day, which the residents very much enjoyed. They now have their own, personalised Daffodil pots. Hopefully, come spring, Charnley House will be awash with yellow.

We’ve enjoyed several Birthday celebrations, with gifts, cards and cakes, as well as a jigsaw afternoon, which obviously was accompanied by tea and biscuits.

Christmas Festivities at Charnley House Care Home in Hyde

The residents here at Charnley House residential care home in Hyde had a wonderful time over the Christmas holidays.

We had entertainment, games and crafts, including making Christmas cards and festive decorations, as well as birthday celebrations. We had carol singing and a Christmas party, where everyone was very jolly and we all wore our Christmas jumpers and hats.

Our local Morrisons have also, very kindly, donated some bulbs in pots, which our residents are nurturing so that hopefully we’ll have some beautiful spring flowers to bring some colour to the home.
