Avon Lodge Care Home, located in Kingswood, Bristol, recently organised an uplifting trip to the nearby Garden Centre, offering residents, staff, and relatives a delightful break in nature.

Within the colourful blooms of Spring, residents of Avon Lodge ventured out to the garden centre: soaking in the sights, scents, and sounds of the great outdoors. The outing was not only a change of scenery but also a chance for residents to connect with nature.

“Getting out and about is so important for our residents’ wellbeing,” said Kelly Irwin, Home Manager at Avon Lodge. “The trip to the Garden Centre is always a crowd favourite. It brought smiles to everyone’s faces and sparked some great conversations.”

As they strolled through the aisles of flowers and plants, residents and their companions’ shared stories reflecting on the simple pleasures of life. The day trip was a reminder of the beauty that surrounds the home, and the happiness that comes from spending time together.

Back at Avon Lodge, there is anticipation for the coming months, as residents expressed hopes of seeing the care home’s garden flourish with the same vibrancy they witnessed at the garden centre.

Avon Lodge Care Home remains dedicated to creating meaningful experiences and nurturing environments for its residents, ensuring they feel valued, engaged, and connected to the world around them.
