With summer in full swing, residents at The Dynes Care Home in Kemsing embraced a seasonal activity in the form of flower arranging on Tuesday 6th September.
Using a variety of beautiful flowers kindly donated by their local Tesco store, residents of the care home enjoyed a sunny morning creating their very own personalised flower displays.
Getting creative with their flowers and foliage, the residents fashioned a number of striking spectacles, which were used to decorate the communal areas of the home.
Kay Hawkins, activity coordinator at The Dynes said: “The residents absolutely loved the flower arranging activity, they thoroughly enjoyed making their own individual displays and kept commenting on how beautiful the flowers looked.
“We would all like to say thank you to our local Tesco store, who donated the huge collection of beautiful flowers that were used for the activity, they really did look fabulous.”
Research has proven that there are many benefits of flower arranging for older people. As well as enabling residents to be creative and use their imagination, it also encourages use of the fingers and hands and is a great stress reliever, promoting a calm atmosphere.
