Once upon a time in Sutton Coldfield – Mercia Grange welcomes three generations for story time and massage

February 25th 2019


Mercia Grange bring together residents, parents and little ones for special afternoons of baby massage and storytelling.

Story Massage Group

Mercia Grange welcomed a group of new mums to the home for the session, during which they used ten simple massage strokes on their babies to help tell them stories, and residents also joined in and spend time getting to know the infants. 

Home manager at Mercia Grange, Shirley Gibbs, said: “At Mercia Grange we love to build upon our relationships with the local community, and are always looking for new ways of bringing everyone together. 

“Meaningful activity is an important part of the care we provide at Mercia Grange, and story massage is extra special as it includes three generations, and is a lovely way for residents to spend time with mums and their babies. 

“It was wonderful to see the smiles on everyone’s faces and the wonderful reactions of the little ones. We would like to thank all the parents for coming to the home and bringing such joy to the residents.”
