Flower Bike Pops up at Wigmore Care Home for Dementia Action Week

A bicycle decorated with flowers has popped up at Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore, raising awareness for Dementia UK.

Residents of the Drewery Drive care home were delighted to spot the beautiful bike flower covered today, which now sits at the entrance to the care home and has arrived just in time for Dementia Action Week.

An anonymous artist, known as ‘Flower Power Bikes’ on Facebook, started creating and displaying the bikes across the county last spring, to spread some positivity and goodwill during challenging times, as well as to raise awareness for charities.

This particular bike is raising awareness for Dementia UK, which is fitting as Dementia Action Week kicks off on Monday 16th May. Dementia Action Week is Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest and longest running awareness campaign, which encourages people to ‘act on dementia.’

Jackie Miles, Home Manager at Rogers House said: “We’re delighted to have a Flower Power Bike proudly stood in front of our home, especially in time for Dementia Action Week.

“As a care provider, we support many people living with dementia, so we understand the importance of raising awareness, understanding symptoms and acting on those. We hope people will enjoy seeing the bike at Rogers House and if it can raise a bit of awareness of dementia too, even better.”
