Smelling of roses at Bradbury House

The residents at Bradbury House in Braintree this week enjoyed an afternoon of flower arranging.

Flower arranging is a great activity for the residents, as they can create floral displays for the home. This activity can grow with residents taking an interest in colour schemes and which flowers to choose, especially depending on the time of the year. Residents can even plant bulbs for the spring, which can then be replanted outside, or they can be sold as planted bulbs, or given as gifts to family and friends.

Regular activity is extremely beneficial to elderly who have beginning dementia or concentration issues, helping to keep them involved in the world around them, providing them daily activity, and exercising their brains. The residents at Bradbury House can also take a pride in their home with activities such as this, providing a sense of purpose.

Thank you to Bernard Chapman Florist in Braintree who kindly donated the flowers for the activity.

Bradbury House provides residential care in a 17th Century converted building for up to 20 elderly people.
