When Four Seasons Health Care’s Marketing Team put out a call that they wanted to make a difference to a care home in a single day, Granby Rose Care Home in Harrogate heeded their call.
They called the team in to ask for help in transforming their garden and courtyard area.
Pamela Rowe, Home Manager at Granby Rose, said: “We called the team in and asked them to help us create a sensory garden for residents and their families to enjoy throughout the summer. It’s safe to say they did a great job.”
After surveying the amount of work, Sales and Marketing Director Charlotte Oppong-Agyare set her team to work mowing, hoeing, strimming, clipping, cleaning, weeding, planting and painting.
Charlotte Oppong-Agyare said: “The team worked really well together to transform the garden and the courtyard. This was a great way to bring the marketing team together and live one of our company values of Making a Difference and contribute to the wellbeing of some of our residents in one of our care homes.”
Once the team had downed tools for the day, and added the final finishing touches, residents, relatives and some of the care team came and checked their handiwork. Some inspected the garden very thoroughly whilst others sat in the courtyard admiring the new vegetable patch.
One relative took the time to thank the team, saying: “I can’t believe the difference you’ve made. On behalf of all the residents and the relatives here I want to thank you. You’ve made a huge difference.”
