Windsor House, and Millennium Care, were grateful to see members of the community come together for a special day which helped provide a speedy revamp for the home’s garden.
We’d like to give a special thanks to the team from Sky and three young refugees joined by a support worker who wanted to lend a helping hand.
They got stuck in helping the home with fencing, painting, planting, and repairing while they were repaid with cold drinks and a lovely BBQ cooked by Windsor’s Chef, Lorraine.
The idea behind the day was to not only utilise the large garden for residents but to provide them with extra opportunities to network and build relationships.
The benefits of creating these moments are endless, some of our residents struggle with mobility so bringing the community to them instantly improves social connections which are proven to improve physical and mental well-being.
Intergenerational connections also provide improved mental stimulation and an increased sense of purpose and belonging for residents.
