Residents at Highfields Care Home in Edingley recently enjoyed an afternoon of festive flower arranging.
Karen, a florist and daughter of one of our resident Margaret, led a wonderful workshop to design and create our own Christmas table decorations. Most of the plants we used came from our own garden, and we also added festive goodies to make them extra magical! We listened to Christmas carols and discussed different plants and different scents as the room smelt of pine, cinnamon and oranges!
After following Karen’s guidance, the end result was some beautiful creations. Our residents ended the activity with a sherry and a minced pie.
Magic Moments Co-ordinator Lisa Argyle said, “it was a wonderfully festive afternoon, resident Joyce especially enjoyed the day as she used to be an international florist! The table decorations are now in situ ready for Christmas Day.”
At Highfields Care Home we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.
Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents. The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
