It was very exciting to receive a visit from ‘Owl Friends’ at Upton Grange.

Spike and Twiggy were accompanied by Pam Graham to meet the residents. Both beautiful owls have been hand reared by Pam and now visit many Care Homes in the area.

Spike is a 2 year old Barn Owl and weighs 10.5ozs.  Twiggy is a Tawny Owl and weighs 12ozs. Although we interrupted their afternoon nap, both Spike and Twiggy were very well behaved and extremely interested in meeting our residents. Everyone had a wonderful time meeting Spike and Twiggy and to have the opportunity to meet such beautiful owls was an experience to be remembered!

Easter Fun at Upton Grange

Baskets at the ready!



On Easter Sunday our wonderful residents had an afternoon of great fun with an Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Egg Raffle at Upton Grange.

It was quite a frenzy with our residents armed with Easter baskets hunting around the home gathering as many eggs as they could find.

The competition was on as one resident in particular proved he was the ‘King’ of Easter egg hunters gathering a whole basket of eggs.  Well done Ted!

One of the family members who had joined us for Easter lunch sent us a ‘Thank you card’. Inside she had written:

Thank you for all your hard work which made Easter Sunday so special.  You all do so much to make sure the residents enjoy themselves. It is very much appreciated’. Laura

With our Easter egg raffle at lunchtime and Easter crackers being pulled, Easter hats adorned, all our residents sat down for a wonderful Easter lunch.

Upton Grange Welcomes Pets as Therapy

We were very happy to receive a visit from Alison and her Pet Therapy dog Katey at Upton Grange.

The aim of ‘Pets As Therapy’ is to bring regular animal OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAcompanionship and comfort to residents by means of visits from volunteers and their registered temperament-tested pets.

Katey, althougOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAh being a ‘very large dog’ was wonderfully sweet natured and the residents enjoyed sharing her warmth and kindness giving her lots of cuddles and tender care.

Katey made lots of friends and one in particular, Charlie, the resident canary, she found extremely interesting!


Thank you Alison for bringing Katey to meet us all.  We cannot wait to see you again soon.
