Brooklyn visit Highway Garden and Leisure

With the advent of the warmer weather and lighter days, at Brooklyn House Nursing Home in Attleborough thoughts have turned to brightly coloured blooms, soothing scents, the buzzing of bees and flitting of butterflies.

Springtime inspires leisurely days out, which the residents of Brooklyn House and their families eagerly embraced, spending it at Highway Garden and Leisure near Norwich which was awash with colour.  Beautiful cyclamens in cerise pink, bright red and cool whites.  A few of the benefits of garden centers for our residents include, a chance to enjoy the outdoors, in a calm relaxing atmosphere that is excellent for the body and mind.  The chance to engage the senses through smell, touch and sound helps to relieve stress and anxiety.

The day was relaxing and fun filled with an enjoyable lunch in the restaurant, Highway has an extensive menu with something for everyone to tuck into. Later on, after a long walk around the gardens a spot of coffee in the café, that specialises in a range of varieties, was a must.  There was even enough time for a spot of shopping!

Resident Beryl said, “It has been a perfect opportunity to buy some new clothes, you really can get most things here and the food was really very good.”

Brooklyn House provides specialist nursing care in a purpose built environment for up to 38 elderly people.
