Residents at HC-One’s Forthbank care home in Stirling took full advantage of the lovely spring weather as they spent the day in the homes garden.
Residents and staff enjoyed the sunshine in Forthbank’s lovely garden and were treated to some tasty ice lollies which went down an absolute treat.
One Forthbank Resident said: “It’s nice to see the sun and feel the fresh air on your skin. I’ve had a lovely day sitting in the sun with the breeze of the river bank and an ice lolly to cool us down.”
Outdoor activity is greatly beneficial for elderly Residents, it can reduce negative thoughts, boost mental and physical wellbeing and improve memory. So, getting out into the garden on a lovely spring day, especially after an extended period inside, will be great for the Residents at Forthbank.
Forthbank Home Manager, Yvonne Graham said: “It’s nice to see so many out and enjoying the fresh air, whilst keeping safe.”
