Forthbank Residents learn the art of flower pressingResidents at Forthbank, nursing and nursing dementia care home, in Stirling have been busy with some arts and crafts.
The art club at the home have recently been trying out lots of new crafts. 

This week the Residents enjoyed a new craft – flower pressing! The Residents had never tried this before and were really excited to learn a new skill.

Pressing flowers is putting a flower between to piece of paper then pressing a heavy object on top so the flower becomes flat. The Residents used their flowers to create pictures and bookmarks. 

The flowers were collected by each of the Residents, so they were able to make their own individual design. The flowers were beautiful, and the old-fashioned roses were highly scented and filled the room with a glorious scent.

Residents were able to reminisce about times they would spend in their own gardens and the flowers they used to grow. Lots of the Residents love gardening so this is the perfect task for them.

Yvonne Graham, Care Home Manager, remarked, “It is lovely to see and hear the Residents sharing stories about their gardening experiences.”

The home is also proud to have a 9.7/10 average user rating provided by Residents and their families on the leading comparison website in the care sector, carehome.co.uk.
