Wildlife talk encourages reminiscence for older people in Framlingham

May 25th 2016

Residents at Mills Meadow care home in Framlingham have enjoyed a wildlife talk with local expert Alex Bass.

The activity was voted for by the residents after they enjoyed a group outing to Minsmere nature reserve and took part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch earlier this year. 

Alex Bass, who offers birdwatching tours and expert talks across the county, spoke with residents about the types of birds and wildlife that can be spotted along the Essex to Norfolk coast line and how to attract more wildlife into their own garden.

Charlotte Golder, lifestyle coordinator at Mills Meadow, said: “Thank you to Alex Bass for coming in and speaking with the residents. It was a great opportunity for residents to reminisce about their favourite bird species as well as the places they used to live and visit along the local coastline.

“At Mills Meadow we encourage residents to suggest ideas and vote for what activities and outings they would like to do. We believe it’s really important for older people to keep active and involved in everyday activities and to continue enjoying the things they love, which is why the nature talk was such a successful event.”

Our new purpose-built care home in the ancient market town of Framlingham is now open. The team in our bright and spacious home plan exciting activities and outings, and residents are welcome to play their part in home life in whatever way they wish, including helping in our lovely gardens.
