Residents have turned green fingered at Doulton Court Care Home in Sutton-on-Sea. The lounge window sill is now home to pots of runner bean seeds waiting to grow.
Joyce Turner, Care Home Home Manager, explains: “The residents wanted to plant something they could eat, and after numerous discussions finally decided on the runner beans. It could be a while yet before the residents see the fruits – or veg – of their labour, but I’m sure once they sprout the residents will be doing all they can to encourage them to grow.”
The residents have also enjoyed a variety of activities including table tennis and sound bingo.
Joyce Turner added: “It’s never a dull moment at Doulton Court. The team here do their upmost to keep our residents happy, and this is reaffirmed by the feedback we receive through our Quality of Life data.”
