RESIDENTS at Cheshire Grange Care Home in Lymm are celebrating being able to go on trips out again as lockdown restrictions ease across the country.
Residents are now able to go on a short trip with their designated visitor without having to isolate on their return.
Several residents from Cheshire Grange Care Home enjoyed long-awaited trips with their named visitor to their family’s gardens.
Dawn Holsgrove-Smith General Manager at Cheshire Grange Care Home commented: “We couldn’t be happier that our residents can start to go out again with their named visitor. Obviously, we still have to be careful so we’re testing visitors before they take residents out but it is wonderful that our residents can spend time with their families out of the home. It really feels like we’ve turned a corner.”
Margaret was one of several residents who went out with family in the first week of the restrictions being lifted, “I am just so happy that I am able to spend some quality time in my garden with my family and Charlie my dog again, we have had such a lovely time together. The staff have been fantastic and worked really hard but it really was special to sit in my own garden with a glass of prosecco.”
A varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
Meanwhile, new residents are being welcomed into our homes for those that need care and support, with all homes as safe as possible by ensuring that all new residents and staff are vaccinated before moving in or working in a property.
