Four Seasons Health Care homes say it with flowers and give thanks to their local communities
On Friday 26th June, Four Seasons care homes were set to celebrate their annual national Care Home Open day. Due to safety regulations put in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of residents, the care homes instead thanked their local communities for the support they have received over the last few months in particular, gifting wildflower seeds to those in their local area.
The much-enjoyed open day that has been hosted by the care homes over the past seven years, would normally see those in the local community join the care home residents and team members to celebrate the day. It was important to Four Seasons that everyone in community uphold the sentiment of the tradition. Homes across the country prepared wildflower seeds to pick up outside the care homes, available for everyone in their local communities as a symbol of appreciation and hope for the future.
More than 54,000 wildflowers were available throughout the care homes across the UK, where residents and the care team prepared the wildflowers for local residents.
Sally Harrison-Exton, Group Head of Product Development, Four Seasons Health Care Group, said, “It’s fair to say the last few months have been pretty difficult for everyone in the UK. We wanted to bring a bit of joy to the communities that have supported us through these unprecedented times; adding some light into what has been quite a dark few months for everyone, by bringing a pot of sunshine into the homes of our friends and neighbours who have shown care and encouragement.
"It is extremely important now more than ever to keep our residents' spirits high and for them to continue engaging with the team, their fellow residents and where we can their community - this lovely initiative has helped do just that. We hope that next year we'll be with our friends and neighbours from the care homes local areas, to celebrate Care Home Open Day together and continue to build the community that has supported us so wonderfully.".
