We all have that one hobby that we absolutely love to do.
For the residents at Bracknell Care Home in Bracknell who love gardening, this latest project is right up their street.
Natsayi Dunira, Home Manager, explains: “The charity Thrive are currently doing 8 weeks of indoor gardening activities with us here at the home. It’s fantastic because our residents are able to embrace their green fingered nature without getting cold or worrying about the ground being too hard outside. It’s safe to say everyone involved loves it. Each resident gets their own work station and are busy potting and planting different things.
“For many of our residents this is a type of therapy as it helps them to reminisce about the time they spent in their own gardens before they joined us here. They each described it as a special experience, and for me seeing the joy on their faces told me it is all worthwhile.”
