Gracewell of Horley Park Residents Enjoy New Mobile Shop

Gracewell  |  September 19, 2018

Local care home Gracewell of Horley Park, on Court Lodge Road, were delighted last week to open up a brand new mobile shop for its residents.

Both residents and Gracewell's team members worked together in the lead-up to the opening to put together and decorate the shop. Complete with traditional décor, shelves and jars of goodies, the standalone shop looks fun and engaging whilst being easily transportable anywhere within the different households at Gracewell - thanks to its wheels.

Wherever they are and whoever they are, residents are given access to the shop to purchase small necessities like toiletries or cards, or treat themselves to sweets or chocolate bars. Managed by Gracewell's lovely residents and Activities Coordinator Gill, the shop opens at regular hours throughout the week for the entire community to appreciate.

Gracewell of Horley Park's Home Manager, Simona Varga -Pali, said:

"Everyone at Gracewell is absolutely thrilled with the new mobile shop. It has brought a real sense of community, with residents and team members working so hard together to get the shop up and running in time for its big reveal.

"Residents really appreciate the independence that the mobile shop has brought them, and enjoy being able to purchase what they need themselves from the comfort of their home. We look forward to continuing the positive atmosphere with the shop becoming a regular and familiar part of life at Gracewell of Horley Park."

Gracewell of Horley Park provides high quality, personalised residential, nursing and dementia care to up to 60 residents. The care home's dedicated and skilled team are pleased to include a focus on activities and events, to ensure that there is always something exciting happening at Gracewell.
