Wigmore Residents Don’t Beat Around the Bush

Everything was coming up roses at Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore last week as residents spent a morning embracing some autumn gardening.

It might be getting cold and crisp outside but there’s still plenty to sow and grow in the autumnal months. This season is the perfect transitional moment to prepare for next spring, so the green fingered residents of the Drewery Drive care home got stuck into some gardening jobs, potting some bulbs from the comfort and warmth of the activity room.

Whilst they spent a lot of time being silly, they still got the job done, filling several plots with plenty of seasonal bulbs, which they hope will bloom beautifully come springtime.

Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House commented: “We are very lucky to have such lovely gardens here at Rogers House and a number of the residents really enjoy helping us to maintain and improve them.

“We all enjoy using them in the warmer months, when we can sit back, relax and admire our hard work!”

Gardening in later life brings a significant number of health benefits, as well as increasing levels of physical activity and helping with mobility and flexibility, it also encourages use of all motor skills, reduces stress levels and promotes relaxation and of course, is a great form of social interaction too.
