The team at Windsor House treated a handful of residents to a visit to Golden Days Garden Centre in Appley Bridge, just one of many spontaneous trips during the week.
Led by Activity Coordinator Bianca, they explored their local garden centre picking up a few bits and bobs; enjoying a rewarding brew and natter at the end of their visit.
The trip gave the gang the chance to reminisce, a brilliant tool for the elderly. Reminiscence helps people cope with growing older, reaffirms feelings of importance and helps them appreciate their lives.
Joan, Doris, Brenda and Stan discussed how Golden Days has grown over the years.
Residents from Windsor House were blown away by the purpose-built 45,000 square ft centre with lots to see and browse all under one roof.
Stan was on the hunt for a birdhouse and was thrilled with the options available to him while the ladies were impressed with the gift section and the plants. They can’t wait to get stuck into Windsor’s garden this summer!
