Congratulations Catherine and William…






From the Royal Wedding Street party at Rose Lodge. Chris rigged up a TV projector and we all watched the proceedings and then had ourselves a little street party.. 



A little Easter magic…..

Every now and then there is a little magic at Rose Lodge.

Like last Sunday, when Pauline and Tony Mortimer led a beautiful Easter Service at Rose Lodge, complete with readings, songs, prayers, communion, and a blessing.

A couple of residents told me afterwards how much they enjoyed the service including one resident who said she had not been to a service for many many years. The ambiance and environment created by Pauline and Tony really helped the residents to connect with the meaning of the ceremony, and so many were able to participate in a meaningful way and derive some comfort from it. This really was a bit of Easter Magic and we are very grateful for it.


Shock-horror: Easter bunny is female!

Not that many people noticed, what with the egg painting, easter bonnet competition, and choclocate eating going on today…..

Happy Easter from Rose Lodge

At Orcombe point - What a great day!

Walking down the esplanade

Rosemobile turns into snack-van for our pit-stop

Last Saturday, residents, family and staff took part in a sponsored walk to raise money for some new garden furniture for the residents. We all met up at the lifeboat station where the Exmouth Journal came to chat with us and take a couple of pictures (and did a nice story about the walk in today’s Exmouth Journal). We all walked together to the Marina and then back to the Lifeboat station where we had a little pit stop. On to Orcombe Point and back again to the lifeboat station. 5 Miles all in all which took us a couple of hours. One of our residents walked the whole distance which was pretty impressive!


The walk was organised by Care assistant Brenda Kelsall with a lot of help from her colleagues. She did a fantastic job of bringing it all together in such a great afternoon for us all.

In fact we enjoyed ourselves so much that we have decided to start a walking club for residents, family and friends, and anyone else that would like to join us!. Watch this space…..
