Activities – December 2018

January 3rd, 2019

We started preparing for the festive season on the last day of November. Residents were invited to help decorate the Christmas tree and enjoy a sherry and mince pie. Other festive activities included Christmas Crafts, such as card and wreath making.

A Yule Log decorating competition took place on Christmas Eve, which was judged by Jay, one of the Chefs at Christopher Grange. Congratulations to the winners who were:

  • First Place – John from Rhona House
  • Second Place – Gerrard from Vincent House
  • Third Place – Mary from Marillac

In addition we had a Christmas market/table top sale, Bingo, Christmas crosswords and play your cards right. Boxing Day consisted of a movie on Greenside enjoyed with a glass of Baileys and the last of the mince pies.

Christopher Grange hosted a Christmas Party, we had entertainment from Lilli Moore and residents had decorated the table cloths for the food trolleys. It put us all in the Christmas spirit!

Trips out involved some residents visiting the Suites Hotel for the Golden Oldie Christmas lunch and a shopping trip to Belle Vale.

We had the pleasure of St Edwards College Choir and the Liverpool Male Voice Choir performing for us.

Charles Bonnet Awareness Group

December 5th, 2018

This group is for people experiencing ‘Phantom Visions’ as Charles Bonnet Syndrome is often called and for people who wish to learn more and support the group.

Charles Bonnet Syndrome causes sufferers to see images that are not real. These visual hallucinations are not due to the onset of dementia but are caused by loss of sight. The hallucinations can disturb and debilitate, impacting negatively on your daily life.

Please do not suffer in silence.
Come and join us at:

Activities – November 2018

December 4th, 2018

In honour of Remembrance Day our residents made wreathes which included the names of their loved ones, we placed them on the Alter in our Chapel for Remembrance Sunday.

Our regular activities such as book club, pom-pom making, armchair exercise and our shopping trips with lunch on a Wednesday are thoroughly enjoyed by residents. 

St Edwards College students continue to visit each Monday to play bingo with our residents, visiting a different unit each Monday.

We celebrated Madge and Carolyn`s birthdays this month – Happy Birthday to them both!

Entertainment this month was provided by a Ukulele Band which proved to be popular with resident’s families and friends coming along to this event at our Sight Loss Learning Hub.
