Residents at two care homes in Godalming are gearing up to take part in some avian-themed activities this January.
Inspired by the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which takes place from Saturday 25th to Monday 27th January, residents will be taking part in a variety of activities related to our feathered friends, as well as topping up their bird feeders and counting the species in their garden.
Alongside Care UK homes across the country, Broadwater Lodge on Summers Road and Jubilee House on Pound Lane, will be celebrating the best of British birds by taking part in a Bird of Prey display for residents and families .
Totka Zhelyazkova, home manager at Jubilee House, explained why discovering our local wildlife is so important: “Residents love taking part in nature-themed activities and learning more about the beautiful environment we live in.
“Spending time outdoors and connecting with nature around us can prove to be beneficial for both the physical and mental wellbeing of older people – particularly those living with dementia. While it is a calming, peaceful activity, the distinctive sounds and vibrant colours of the garden are also great for providing sensory stimulation.
Angela Bookham, home manager at Broadwater Lodge, added: “It’s brilliant to be getting involved with such a meaningful initiative and encouraging everyone to take notice of the beautiful wildlife Britain has to offer. We’re looking forward to welcoming the local nursery into the home to celebrate the best of British birds with us too!”
