In celebration of a new season, a Spring garden has come to life at The Salvation Army’s Moyne Aged Care Centre.
Residents at the residential aged care centre in Canowindra, led by the Centre’s Lifstyle Assistants Melissa Delaney and Leanne Flannery, have been working on this project since the start of Spring.
“After spending many hours cutting and pasting each flower, Spring has sprung at our Centre – turning our dining rooms into a beautiful garden,” Ms Delaney said.
“We worked with 20 residents to put together the blooms which we then placed on the walls to brighten up the facility.”
Centre Manager Roxane Sciberras added that this was the first time the Centre has taken a craft project of this size.
“The activity was a major success with all involved being so very proud of the outcome,” she said.
“The purpose of the activity was to build a sense of purpose and pride among our residents and an opportunity to show off their hard work to loved ones and friends.
“We’ve already received many compliments from all our visitors, staff and residents. We will continue the Spring garden project through to Friday, 20 September to decorate other areas of the Centre including the main activity room.”
