My Typical Day at Beneavin

  • by Helen Murphy.
  • A lazy start to the morning with night nurses saying goodbye as they head home after their night shift and the day staff greeting the residents with warm friendly smiles.
  • Breakfast is served with no fuss. My chosen breakfast from the menu is served to me in the bedroom as I like to get out of bed first thing. 
  • When I am ready, the staff will assist me to have a wash/ shower. Sometimes I enjoy a hydrotherapy bath where I can just relax and enjoy the experience.
  • The mornings can be busy or quiet depending on how much or how little I want to do. Lisa, the Social Care leader provides me with a timetable of events for the coming week. I can plan my own activities around my day.  I will attend mass some mornings as Beneavin has 4 masses a week which is great.
  • Lunch is served in the main dining room. On some occasions when I have visitors I have it in my bedroom. The lunchtime is a very sociable event where myself and my friends come together to chat. Beneavin Include the residents in the creation of the menus.
  • After lunch there are lots of things going on. I can attend activities on my own floor or I can go to another floor where there may be something else going on that interests me more. There are numerous activities such as Arts and Crafts, Music, Physical exercises, Knitting, and lots more. 
  • I have gone out on trips with other residents and staff. Last year we met President Higgins in the Aras and have a fabulous afternoon tea.
  • Tea time is another very sociable event where we all come together again. I said before to one new resident that the only thing wrong with the food in BNH is that there is just too much of it!.
  • Evening time is a lovely past of the day. We can sit and chat, take part in floor activities or rest in our rooms. Mass takes place some evenings.
  • At night time, I go to bed tired and very happy looking forward to tomorrow.

I've only been here a few months but it is terrific and so homely. The staff never pass me without saying hello and would do anything for me. I couldn't fault it.
