Rendlesham Create Hanging Baskets

At Rendlesham Care Center this week we all decided to create some hanging baskets to hang outside the our home.

Gardening (indoors) is just as good as outdoors, and can still provide an enjoyable form of exercise for everyone involved because it increases levels of physical activity and maintains mobility and flexibility. It also encourages use of motor skills depending on the level of gardening being done, such as walking, reaching and bending just through activities such as planting seeds, picking up plants and taking cuttings.

 

Our residents find that it reduces their stress levels and promotes relaxation and stimulation, creating an interest in nature and the outdoors, all ready for the Spring months!

The residents were ready to help more with the instructions than getting their hands dirty this time but there will be plenty of chances to come. We all worked together as a team and got two baskets completed, before it was time to stop for a well-earned cup of tea and a piece of cake.

Jane was admiring our handy work!
