At Rose Lodge Care Home in Exmouth we believe it is possible to live well with dementia.

Do you enjoy live music, singing and dancing, or joining a choir ? How about crafts or art ? Perhaps you like to be active and enjoy bowling, rambling, physical exercise and yoga ? or maybe you enjoy cooking and gardening, or looking after animals such as cats, chickens, fish, doves, and rabbits ? Or how about testing your knowledge in a pub quiz, or  performing on stage at the Blackmore theatre ? You can do all these things at Rose Lodge Care Home and more!

Seasonal celebrations

Many people find it difficult to remember what season they are in. So celebrating special dates can help them to orient themselves in the year. We arrange activities and events around special days such as Christmas, Easter, St Georges Day, VE Day etc.

We also get together to enjoy big sporting events such as Wimbledon and the football world cup and at times like that our TV becomes the hub of our resident community.

The garden features highly in our life at rose Lodge and we encourage people to go outside and stay in touch with the seasons through growing plants and vegetables and helping to care for our outside animals (fish, chickens, rabbits, and doves)

An active part of the community

Planting for Exmouth in Bloom

Being part of the wider community can help many people to maintain a sense of connection and well-being. Some our residents join in the weekly ‘singing for the brain’ group at Brixington Church, and we organise outings to the theatre, the beach, and attractions such as the World of Country Life. We also ensure that people who wish to exercise their rights to vote in local and general elections can do so.

We have a great relationship with a local primary school who perform concerts at Rose Lodge around Christmas and Easter time, and we continue to work with the children of a local school to grow vegetables with the residents under a community landshare arrangement. In our experience the presence of children always brings a smile to the faces of our residents, and we believe the children also benefit from contact with older people and from growing vegetables themselves.

This year we established a relationship with Exmouth In Bloom. As well as entering our gardens in a couple of their competition categories (and coming runner-up in the vegetable section), the residents have also volunteered to plant out communal spaces in Exmouth
