It’s the perfect time of year for a spring clean and residents at our Ryde care home are more than happy to help!

Our staff have been supporting residents to be more involved with the day-to-day jobs around their home, promoting independence and boosting their skills.

They’ve been working on the skills needed to keep a clean home, including keeping their bedroom clean and tidy, washing up, ironing (with the support of staff) and helping to put the bins out.

Speaking of getting involved with the housework, resident, Michele said: “Getting everyone together to help makes us all happy.”

Another resident, Caroline, added: “and it’s good for arm movement!”
Ashley Barrier-Close, Registered Manager at the care home for people with learning disabilities said: “It’s so important to encourage positive interaction and active support for residents, as it enables them to remain active, stimulated, and independent.

“Building independent living skills can help to increase confidence, develop a can-do attitude, and generally improve quality of life.”
