Worthington Lake’s wish tree blossoms

2 minute read

Worthington Lake has introduced a ‘tree of life’, handcrafted by their Maintenance Man, Dave, with the purpose of helping residents recite valuable memories.

Dave designed and handcrafted the tree for residents to paint over Easter, but the home wanted to extend its shelf life.

Staff at Worthington Lake asked their House Guests to share a memory they wouldn’t forget and to write them down on ‘forget me not’ flowers to attach to the tree.

Alisha Bromley, Worthington’s Activity Coordinator, came up with the idea and said:

“I think it’s great for residents to live in the memories they’ve got, it’s so important to reminisce and live in the moment.

“It’s a good opportunity for us to learn more about our House Guests and it’s brilliant to have topics to discuss in our one-to-one's.

“I learnt all about many of their past pets, families, and experiences. I think they’re invaluable.”

Alisha Bromley, Worthington’s Activity Coordinator

“I love when my job engages and supports our House Guests, to see the benefit they’re getting is so fulfilling. It’s great to be a part of this process.”

Dave Kerrs, Maintenance Man at Worthington Lake

The team are excited to learn new memories as the tree comes into full bloom!
