Garden House welcomed local children into their home this year, for their annual Care Home Open Day. Garden House worked in partnership with Sensory Connexions, for a Queen’s Birthday themed sensory workshop.

Sensory Connexions owners, Denise Wilson-Bainbridge and Gill Chapman, reflected on the workshop ‘it was a pleasure to see everyone so involved with the workshop. It was also a great delight to see the residents and children working together, which for us, is what it’s all about.’ Garden House’s activities coordinator, Erika Richards, stated ‘it was amazing seeing the residents faces light up. They thrived off the children being in the home, it was just wonderful to see.’
