Life at Grove Park Home is a combination of community, care, and activities. Our staff ensure days are spent with meaningful activities and any necessary rehabilitation. Meals and snacks are a component of each day, and focus is put on creating a pleasurable dining experience. Spiritual services are available throughout the week.
Live at Grove Park Home
Food & Nutrition
The Home is part of a national program called Nourish. The program encourages the procurement of locally grown food. Residents enjoy local dairy products and fresh local produce when available. Residents are offered two choices at mealtimes and on-site dieticians ensure meals are nutritionally complete. Additionally, there are several snack and beverage services offered throughout the day.
Strength and Movement
Upon admission, residents are assessed by a physiotherapist. Residents may receive physiotherapy treatments or rehabilitation activities to encourage independence. Changes in health will prompt reassessment and a new care plan. Therapy can be done on individual units or in our fully equipped Rehabilitation Room.
Programs & Activities
Program staff offer monthly calendars full of activities. Residents are encouraged to attend to allow social interaction and to avoid isolation. Music, art, crafts, and clubs offer something for everyone. There are weekly entertainment providers who bring together the whole Home in the auditorium. Volunteers also offer activities based on their own expertise.
Grove Park Home has a Chaplain on staff who offers weekly Bible Study to residents and serves as spiritual support to staff, residents, and families. The Home also hosts local church representatives who provide weekly services in our chapel. The Chapel, located near the cafe, is always open for those needing quiet reflective space.
Don’t take our word for it
Here’s what people say about us
Once retired, I answered a newspaper ad for volunteers at Grove Park Home. Five years later I am still here. I have enjoyed friendly visits, outings, and working in the café. While I enjoy the hours that I spend here, what I find very special is how staff know all the residents by name and always stop to say hello; it is a very personal touch. Volunteering at this Home is very rewarding for me, especially if it makes a difference to the residents and staff. Noella G.
