Rosebridge Court’s garden projectThroughout the summer months, and starting in May, Support Workers Aileen and Joanne of HC-One’s nursing memory care home, Rosebridge Court, decided to make a relaxing seating area in the home’s garden. 

Armed with some vision, a kind donation of pallets from a local builder’s yard, and some handy work from Ian (the home’s maintenance Colleague), they set about creating a beautiful area. 

With some help from Residents, they set about fixing and painting. The ladies bought seat pads, a sail to sit in the shade and lots of plants. 

A landscape scene finished off the area and they now have a beautiful, quiet area to sit and contemplate while admiring the surroundings. 

Various flowers and vegetables were planted, including tomatoes, strawberries, sprouts and cabbages. The home-grown tomatoes were used to make salsa for the Residents.

One Resident said she enjoyed painting the area the best, and others liked the planting best. “It feels good to be outside and doing different jobs,” one commented. 

AJ, who lives at the home, was putting her acquired gardening skills to good use, " I will show you how to plant flowers."

Cheryl Little, Care Home Manager, commented, “A big thanks to all who have taken part to enhance the surroundings for our Residents.”
