Morning activities in the garden

The dementia-friendly garden at Waypoints has been designed to enhance the overall environment of the home by providing a safe and secure space which residents can utilise in a meaningful way.

 

The garden is fully wheelchair accessible and various types of seating is provided to enable residents to enjoy the fragrance and colours of the sensory garden.

 

For those residents who used to enjoy growing their own vegetables we have a small kitchen garden where onions, carrots, and a variety of herbs are currently being planted by three of our residents, The Chef makes daily use of the herbs!!!

 

They are also tending to peppers and tomatoes that are being nourished and brought on in the greenhouse and potting shed.

 

For those who enjoy shrubs and flowering plants then there is a feast of colour to see, a water feature also brings a sense of life to the garden as a whole.

 

We also overlook a site of special interest and within this area wildlife abounds and is a continually changing vista, from a doe feeding its fawn, to a fox running through the undergrowth trying to catch the many rabbits. A woodpecker can also be heard in the trees.

 

The garden is so important to daily life it enables residents to socialise and exercise within the bounds of their individual frailty and to enjoy the fresh air.

 

How often have you enjoyed the wind upon your face can you imagine what it would be like never to be able to do this again?. Here at Waypoints we encourage you to rediscover your past life and relive it today.
