Residents at Tall Trees will be going back to nature with a multi-sensory trip into spring at Maldon Promenade Park after Easter.
Residents, their relatives, the team, their children and dogs will all be joining in on the day-long adventure to the park – and hopes are high that spring will have finally sprung!
The Tall Trees team have recently been working with specialist trainers Dementia Adventure and learning a lot about the way nature can benefit people with dementia.
Katherine Foley, home Manager, said: “The changing of the seasons can be a powerful trigger of memories and we are hoping that seeing the trees coming into bud and the flowers opening will help people remember springs past.
“Smell is also one of the last senses to be affected by dementia and we are hoping that the smells of spring will also prove very evocative.”
The park also has a sensory garden, a maze and a small beach area so there will be lots of fun things to see and do.
Katherine added: “Everyone is greatly looking forward to the trip and with so many relatives and children joining us, it should have the real feel of a family day out in the country.”
