Wigmore Care Home Resident Enjoys a Walk to Remember
After over a year stuck indoors, Vera Flowers, a resident at Rogers House Residential Care Home, enjoyed a lovely springtime walk to the local park.
With her family in Australia and care homes enduring a lengthy lockdown, Vera hasn’t had any visitors or been out since March 2020. So with the easing of restrictions allowing care home residents to go out and about without the need to isolate on return, and the sun shining, Activity Coordinator, Hannah Newman-Brown decided to take Vera out for a stroll to the local park, to see the spring flowers in bloom.
The pair soaked up the sunshine as they wandered through the park and enjoyed taking in the picturesque spring scenes. What would have previously been a simple walk meant so much more, after such a long time inside. A beautiful big blossom tree was a particular highlight for Vera, bringing a big smile to her face.
Hannah said: “It was a privilege to be able to take Vera out, she kept saying how it felt like we were so far away, even though we were less than a mile from home. It’s been so long that to her it felt like a whole new world!”
