Enjoying the Sunshine at East Hill House

At East Hill House care home in Liss, we took full advantage of the glorious sunny weather we have had of late, enjoying the wonderful sunshine and getting out into the beautiful gardens at our home.

It was so lovely one day that by unanimous decision we held our residents and relatives meeting on our decking. With lots of cool drinks and refreshments to hand, hats and sunglasses galore and sun cream applied, it was great to get outside and feel the sun on our faces and feel the fresh spring air.

We have been busy potting new plants and flowers for our garden and it was lovely to see them in bloom, adding a splash of colour and brightening up our outside space.

Our butterflies are progressing nicely and we are looking forward to seeing them spread their wings and enjoy our garden too on Butterfly Education and Awareness Day (BEAD) on 2 June.

Some residents have even chosen to have their lunch ‘al fresco’ too as it has been so nice.

While many of us love the feel of the warm rays on our faces, sunshine also brings a few other lesser-known health benefits as well such as improved sleep, lower blood pressure, improved bone health and brain function, to name just a few.

So with summer on the way, that means longer days with more sunshine are in the near future. Long may the glorious weather last!

East Hill House which provides residential and dementia care for up to 32 elderly people, was awarded ‘Best Dementia Care Home of the Year’ at the prestigious National Dementia Care Awards in 2017. Rated ‘Good’ by the quality inspector, CQC, they continuously improve the lives of their residents through offering wide ranging activities and events both in and outside of the home involving members of the local community as often as possible.
