Gardening at Aurem Care homes

At Aurem Care, we understand the immeasurable benefits of gardening, and that’s why many of our homes have beautifully nurtured gardens. We recognise that gardening can be an essential and fulfilling part of life for many of our residents, offering not only a chance to connect with nature but also numerous physical, mental, and emotional advantages.

The impact of gardening

The joys of gardening are evident in the smiles and contentment of our residents as they spend time tending to the plants, flowers, and vegetables in our gardens. Being surrounded by nature brings a sense of tranquillity and a connection to the natural world, which can be incredibly therapeutic and calming for individuals in our care.

Recently, our Buxton Lodge Care Home activities team received an accolade to be proud of – they secured the third position in the Aurem Care Green Fingers 2023 gardening competition. The team’s dedication and love for gardening were evident in the stunning array of flowers, fruits, and vegetables that adorned our gardens. We take immense pride in our green spaces and the opportunity they provide for our residents to engage in meaningful and rewarding activities.

An activity for all

Moreover, recognising the importance of making gardening accessible to all, we have also created an indoor garden at Buxton Lodge. This allows residents who may face mobility challenges or unfavourable weather conditions to still experience the joys of gardening within the comfort of their living space.
