Gardens & Grounds
The gardens are made up of a large expanse of lawn with a patio off the conservatory and surrounding paths leading to seating under a large Willow tree offering shade and a calm area to reflect. A busy wildlife pond lies close to some small raised beds and a herb garden where residents and relatives may enjoy their own produce or simply watch others in action.
We are planning a new sensory garden area for 2019, and consulting with our local community and Congleton in Bloom. This should be an exciting project involving staff, residents, relatives and the community and we are very much looking forward to starting.
The residents enjoy the lawn areas in the summer and there are various items of patio furniture, gazebos and a BBQ for outside parties and activities when weather permits. This is also used for fetes and outdoor relaxation and entertainment throughout the year. A bright and stylish conservatory provides space for friends and family to sit and chat when visitng, and alos a large dementia-friendly space for activities such as painting, crafts and various group therapies. Residents are encouraged and supported in spending time outside and invited to plant their own seeds, have their own bird feeders etc.
