A care home in Sutton Coldfield bring together residents, parents and little ones for special afternoons of baby massage and storytelling.

Care UK’s Mercia Grange welcomed a group of new mums to the home on Lichfield Road for the session, during which they used ten simple massage strokes on their babies to help tell them stories, and residents also joined in and spend time getting to know the infants.

Home manager at Mercia Grange, Shirley Gibbs, said: “At Mercia Grange we love to build upon our relationships with the local community, and are always looking for new ways of bringing everyone together. 

“Meaningful activity is an important part of the care we provide at Mercia Grange, and story massage is extra special as it includes three generations, and is a lovely way for residents to spend time with mums and their babies.

“It was wonderful to see the smiles on everyone’s faces and the wonderful reactions of the little ones. We would like to thank all the parents for coming to the home and bringing such joy to the residents.”

Mercia Grange is a state-of-the-art care home which provides full-time residential, nursing, dementia, and short-term respite care. The three-storey care home, which features 67 ensuite bedrooms, has been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence. The care home incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities, and includes its own cinema, hair salon and café.
