A blooming success for Dove Court in HC-One gardening competitionThis year HC-One’s annual Gardening Competition saw a number of outstanding creations submitted from across its care homes in the UK. This year’s Gardening Competition has been even more significant in bringing joy and excitement to Residents and Colleagues, during what has been a difficult time for everyone due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s green fingers award category winner, who is a Resident living in the care home is:

Albert Neil, Dove Court Care Home 

Albert is a keen gardener and helped to pot the hanging baskets and eye-catching flowers in containers currently proudly on display in the garden. Gardening has helped improve Albert’s wellbeing and provided opportunities for him to reminisce using all of his senses.

The judges of the HC-One Gardening Competition were incredibly grateful to all entrants for taking part and were especially impressed with this year’s prize winners. HC-One has had a great success with this year’s Gardening Competition and look forward to running the Gardening Competition in subsequent years to come.
