Life at Murrayside is all about making new friends, enjoying lifelong interests – and even trying something new.
At Care UK we recruit our care home teams for their attitude, first and foremost. They’re passionate and fun, and they work together to bring a smile to the face of each resident and to help them feel special. They treat each person as an individual, supporting them to enjoy each day to the full.
The lifestyle team at Murrayside ensure that there’s always a choice of activities for residents to get involved in each day. We want them to continue doing those hobbies and interests they’ve always enjoyed, but there is always something different to try too.
We encourage residents to mix within small and socially distanced groups within the home and garden, where they can relax with friends or take part in the busy lifestyle programme. Typical activities include exercise classes, music sessions, sing-alongs, gardening, quizzes, baking, puzzles, and arts and crafts.
Enjoying good food with friends
Meal times are a real highlight at the home, giving residents a chance to catch up with friends, while enjoying the tempting and nutritious food served up by our talented chef-led catering team. We also offer in-room dinning for residents who may prefer to, or need, additional distancing.
Our team serve up a range of tempting hot and cold options, made from fresh ingredients and designed around individual preferences and cultural and dietary needs. And if there’s nothing that takes your loved one’s fancy, the team will cook them whatever they would like. Care UK’s chef-led catering teams are among the highest qualified and most experienced in the care industry, giving top chefs from the hotel and restaurant world a run for their money.
