Worcester care home residents take birdwatch weekend to the ‘nest level’

February 17th 2020

Care UKs Perry Manor celebrates Birdwatch with Walks with Hawks_1Residents at a care home in Worcester celebrated Britain’s best birds as part of the world’s largest garden wildlife survey – and it was a flying success!

This year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch saw residents at Care UK’s Perry Manor, on Charles Hastings Way, celebrate the best of British birds with some exciting avian-themed activities.

As part of the celebrations, residents were joined by Walks with Hawks which brought feathered friends, including a barn owl and a hawk. Residents enjoyed getting up close with the impressive creatures and took part in a ‘show and tell’ to learn more about the birds.

Katherine Matthews, home manager at Perry Manor, said: “Residents love taking part in nature-themed activities here at Perry Manor, and we had a lot of fun celebrating this year’s bird-themed event. Our feathered friends from the Walks with Hawks were wonderful to see up close and created wonderful discussions about British wildlife.

“Connecting with nature can be extremely important for older people, and promotes positive social interaction, improves wellbeing and provides an opportunity for sensory stimulation. This can be incredibly beneficial for those living with dementia, as it can conjure happy memories and the associated emotions.

“I’d like to say thank you to Walks with Hawks for joining us and making the day so special.”
