Wigmore Care Home Sets up Shop for Residents

The closure of all non-essential shops isn’t a problem for Rogers House residents, as staff have created high street experience at the Wigmore residential care home.

Shelves are lined with clothes and baskets filled with toiletries and sweets at the recently opened in-house shop, which invites the residents to take a trip to town and shop until they drop, without even needing to walk out of their front door.

After a generous donation from a former resident’s family of lots of brand new clothes, the staff decided to open a shop, so residents can enjoy the opportunity to go somewhere different and recreate that high street shopping trip experience.

A welcome distraction amidst the pandemic, the shop enables residents to enjoy not just a long-awaited change of scenery but to embrace some independence in carrying out tasks.

Hannah Brown, Activity Coordinator at Rogers House said: “We would like to say a very big thank you to the family for the kind donation of the clothes, the residents are loving being able to visit a different environment and in particular, getting their wardrobes summer ready.

“We’re all missing browsing the shops at the moment and our residents have been staying at home for so long now so we’re thrilled we could bring the shops to them and give them this experience!”
