Living in a care home can give you the same sense of pride as living in your own family home. This was certainly the case at Broadacres Care Home in Rotherham.
Helen Walker, Home Manager, explained: “The residents wanted to make the most of the beautiful weather, and sit ou tin the garden. However, the grass needed cutting so the residents enlisted the help of our lovely maintenance man who got the lawn mower out.
“Before he could start cutting the grass, one of our lovely gentlemen offered to do the job himself. A fine job he did too!
“He’s now offered to do this on a regular basis, as gardening used to be a hobby of his that he’d like to pick back up. “
