Flowers of hope at Harrogate Lodge

‘Where flowers bloom, so does hope…..’

The residents at Harrogate Lodge Care Home have been busy creating a flower wall in their weekly arts activity.

Our Activity Coordinator Elaine came up with the idea after reading former First Lady of the USA, Lady Bird Johnson’s quote ‘Where flowers bloom, so does hope’.

The flowers are drawn or coloured in by residents living in our dementia unit and the wall is added to every week. Solomon, who is pictured here, is one of our carers who along with his colleagues has been supporting Elaine and our residents to create this uplifting art project.

Home Manager Caroline said, “This is so pertinent in these uncertain times and at Harrogate Lodge we have an abundance of hope for the future.  The quote may have inspired the wall, but it also reflects how we approach our work. With love and hope. Hope for the future and being able to welcome all our much missed relatives back into our home.”
