Pony visits, afternoon teas, bake-offs and pamper sessions. It’s just another day at Millers Grange!
Here in our Witney care home, we believe that life is for living – to the full. So when your loved one joins us at Millers Grange we work hard to find out all about their life history, interests and wishes, then we support them to live life in the way they wish.
Whether your loved one prefers one-to-one or small group activities, helping around the home or being in their own company, we will ensure that they enjoy a meaningful and fulfilling lifestyle.
Our Lifestyle team organises a weekly programme of activities, including exercise sessions, film afternoons (complete with freshly popped corn), pamper sessions, knitting, reminiscence sessions, baking, and even a pony life-drawing class.
Nothing beats a good chat, and at 3pm each day colleagues ‘down tools’ to get together with residents for tea, cake and a catch up. ‘Boys’ lunches’ and ‘Ladies’ afternoon teas’ have also been regular diary dates, all hosted by our senior managers.
Our gardens are one of the home’s biggest assets, with raised flower beds, wandering pathways, an outside bar and BBQ area, a range of seating areas, and a greenhouse. Residents love planting seeds and keeping everything looking lovely.
Our Facebook page is regularly updated with photos of what residents have been up to. You can ‘like’ the page to stay in touch with what residents and the team are doing.
Out and about
Everyone looks forward to a change of scene, and Millers Grange is close to some fantastic cultural and historical treasures that make perfect day trip destinations. We’re spoilt for choice with the likes of Blenheim Palace, Hidcote Gardens and the Cotswolds on our doorstep and we can’t wait to get back out in our mini bus when it’s safe to do so.
Part of the Witney community
Millers Grange plays a big part in local life. In the past, residents have attended local churches and community groups and we have hosted baby massage sessions, which enable new mums to meet up and socialise, and residents to enjoy cuddles with the little ones.
Our relationships with the youngsters from nearby schools and nurseries have become incredibly important to residents and children alike – we look forward to a time when we can welcome everyone back into our home once more.
Make a wish
We believe that anything is possible at any age, and, as part of Care UK’s wishing tree initiative, we have a wishing tree onto which residents hang wishes of things they’d like to experience.
Last year, when a 92-year-old gentleman expressed a wish to go skiing for the first time in his life, we made it happen. (And he made it onto the national news!) Visiting penguins have made another resident’s birthday wish come true.
