Transforming the Garden at Oak Manor

Colleagues, residents and relatives are busy transforming the garden at Oak Manor care home in Scarning, near Dereham to get the best from the space for everyone.

Being in a garden and taking part in horticultural activities has been shown to be of great benefit for people living with dementia. The benefits from structured therapeutic gardening activities include a positive impact on sense of wellbeing, cognitive abilities, communication and engagement.

Gardening also focuses on positive reminiscence and enables our residents to re-connect with others including friends and family and also allow for gentle appropriate exercise and cognitive stimulation.

Home manager Regina Mparutsa explained;

“Everyone loves our garden and have been getting involved painting the tyres for planting and tidying the place up. We are making this a lifetime project and have already started to think about how we can still garden when the summer is over.”

Oak Manor care home in Scarning, near Dereham provides specialist residential and nursing care for up to 61 elderly residents living with a form of dementia.

If you would like to find out more about life at Oak Manor and the care we offer, or to request a meeting with our Home Manager, please contact us on 0808 223 5528 or oakmanor@CaringHomes.org.
