Keeping it in the Family at Roden Hall

When moving yourself or a loved one into care, maintaining relationships with loved ones is a primary concern for many.

Whilst Roden Hall provides an inspiring calendar of activities and entertainment, the home recognises the importance of welcoming visits from family and friends, involving residents and families in special occasions and sustaining those important bonds. Whether it be facilitating a celebration for a resident’s milestone birthday, uniting loved ones for family occasions, or inviting relatives to take part in activities – staff at the home will include families wherever possible. 

Resident, Kate Davey,  turned 100 in the company of families, friends and fellow residents in a balloon filled party held in the home’s lounge. During the festive period, relatives were welcomed into the at-home café to challenge their loved ones at their favourite games. Frequent visits from a resident’s daughter and her golden retriever, ‘Ella’, prompted the residents to gift a blanket created during the weekly ‘Knit and Natter’ club – showing that families, friends, and even pets, become valued members of ‘the Roden Hall family’.
The home holds several events throughout the year to unite residents with families and friends. The ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed tea party for ‘Silver Sunday’ in October, enabled families to come together and create new memories. Once more, the home will be holding a ‘Marie Curie Coffee Morning’ on 3rd March from 11am, providing an opportunity for residents and their families to gather whilst raising money for a worthy cause. As shown, living in a care home needn’t be a barrier to spending quality time with loved ones and maintaining those precious relationships.
Operated by Rotherwood Healthcare, Roden Hall provdes award-winning Residential and Nursing Care. For more information, or to find out more about the upcoming Marie Curie event, contact 01952 743159, or visit,
