Strathview are making their home bloom for this summer!

Strathview Care Home residents joining in the Aria in Bloom activity 2023

As we head into the warmer months, it’s the perfect time to get into the garden. At Aria Care we believe in the power of teamwork, which is why we launched our Spring into Summer initiative this May, with a ‘One Team Approach’. We understand the importance of making a great first impression so we rallied our teams to work together and get ready for the summer.

Both the team and those ‘green-fingered’ residents at Strathview Care Home are extremely proud of their home and thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in our Aria in Bloom activity.

Our married couple had an enjoyable time working as a team. Bill, who used to be an engineer went straight into building the benches and his wife Bernice, was at home planting rose bushes and a cherry blossom tree.

Other residents and team members worked very hard tidying up the gardens and planting some beautiful flowers into our flower beds and into a selection of pots and planters. We followed up a wonderful day in the garden with an indoor project, bringing the outside in to the home. We painted some wonderful pictures of flowers and plants on the wall in our dining room, which brightened up the space.

We would like to thank our wonderful volunteers and team for helping us on our Aria in Bloom day. In particular Bill and Bernice, who made a real difference in making the outside space at Strathview beautiful.

Aria in Bloom will become a yearly activity that everyone across the company will get involved with, helping our homes prepare for the warmer days ahead. Our residents will then be able to enjoy their outdoor spaces and give them and their visitors a beautiful space to unwind.

Strathview provides residential and dementia care on a permanent or short stay basis. If you are looking for a care home and want to find out more about our home call freephone 0808 223 5538.
