Mellow January for High Peak Lodge

Residents of High Peak Lodge Residential and Nursing Home in Leigh have been enjoying a calm and relaxing January after a busy festive season.

Christmas celebrations culminated in a New Year’s Eve party with music, seasonal nibbles, Baileys and mulled wine.

Though fun, regular get-togethers such as dominoes tournaments and bingo continue this month, the emphasis has switched to wellbeing.

Our activities co-ordinator, Leanne, said: “One thing we love to take part in is our weekly sensory sessions, with mellow, coloured lighting and aromatic oils such as aniseed, lavender and pine.

“We also have bean bags and squishy balls that our residents can hold and squeeze, to help keep their hands and fingers supple.”
