Yesterday, Mick, a valued resident of Rastrick Hall & Grange Care Home in Rastrick, embarked on a delightful excursion into Brighouse town, accompanied by our dedicated Activities Lead, Megan. This outing wasn’t just about ticking off shopping essentials; it was an opportunity for Mick to reconnect with the world outside and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

The day began with a visit to Tesco, Boots, and Poundland, ensuring that Mick had everything he needed. However, the highlight of the trip was undoubtedly the stop at the local “Spoons,” where Mick had the chance to reunite with some familiar faces over a well-deserved pint.

At Rastrick Hall & Grange, we are guided by the belief that life doesn’t pause when someone moves into a care home. Through our person-centred care ethos, we engage residents in discussions about their personal aims and aspirations for the future. This approach allows us to tailor care and lifestyle plans that honour their needs, desires, and preferences, enabling them to live each day on their terms.

Reflecting on his day out, Mick remarked, “It’s been a great day. I don’t know what was better, spending time with Megan or having a pint.” His sentiment encapsulates the essence of our commitment to fostering meaningful connections, enhancing quality of life, and promoting autonomy among our residents.

Megan, alongside the entire team at Rastrick Hall & Grange, is dedicated to ensuring that every resident’s day is filled with joy, purpose, and fulfillment. Mick’s outing serves as a testament to the transformative power of person-centered care and the importance of integrating residents into the broader community.

As we continue to uphold our ethos of personalised care, we remain steadfast in our dedication to supporting residents like Mick in living their lives to the fullest, one meaningful experience at a time.
