DAILY LIFE AT VIDA
Vida Grange has been carefully designed and built to our exact specification to allow our residents to live healthily, happily and as actively as possible under the expert care of the Vida Grange team.
Dining & Nutrition
Nutritious food plays a big role in keeping elderly and vulnerable people in good health. We understand that encouraging your residents to eat well can be challenging at times – that’s why we put so much effort into creating an extensive choice of nutritious meals and special diet options to ensure our residents not only receive the necessary nutrition but also enjoy mealtimes.
We do have set mealtimes at Vida Grange, however, residents can eat when and where they would like, be it in one of our dining areas or in the privacy of their own room.
Wellbeing & Lifestyle
We know that giving people a sense of purpose and self-worth is vitally important to their wellbeing. Whilst we do have wellbeing facilities, it is en-grained in our staff that it is all of our responsibilities to help our residents live a joyful and fulfilled day. We are focused on maintaining the independence and dignity of our residents. That might be just helping someone make their own cup of tea, or promoting someone to do simple house tasks like washing up and setting the table. Sustaining those every day tasks that sometimes we take for granted.
At Vida Grange, there is a TV lounge, café kitchen, coffee shop, hair and barber salon and a selection of sitting areas which have been designed to provide a range of opportunities for socialising, taking part in activities or simply enjoying some quiet time.
There are regular activities which residents can choose to take part in if they wish, including musical entertainment, exercise classes and arts & crafts. Residents are also encouraged and supported to pursue their own interests and hobbies.
We are committed to supporting our residents to remain involved in community life. Many of our residents enjoy taking trips to the local parks, farms, gardens, cafes, library, local events, groups or places of worship.
Our balcony garden areas are a calming and peaceful space. Our philosophy connects the internal to the external, encouraging residents to maintain the health and wellbeing created by spending time outdoors.
Friends and family are a big part of life at Vida – there are no strict visiting times. We run regular family meetings and we also offer group support sessions, giving families advice or the opportunity to share their experience of dementia in a supportive setting.
