What a busy few weeks we have had here at Ferns Nursing Home! During May we introduced some lovely new and exciting activities for our residents – and they seem to be enjoying them very much!
A weekly ‘Library on Wheels’ was introduced and has a selection of books for our residents to choose from. For those who are not able to read due to poor eyesight, we have some audio books available for them to listen to.
We have a shopping trolley that comes round once a week, from here, residents can purchase items such as toiletries, sweets and various other things. Since we have introduce d this into the home, it has proven to be very successful!
Arts and crafts activities along with origami take place on a daily basis to keep the residents’ minds and hands occupied. For those who cannot join in, we provide one to one room visits where we read and reminisce with the residents and listen to a variety of audio books.
Residents have had regular coffee mornings in the lounge and have enjoyed a movie or two in the afternoons.
Once a week we have a pamper day, where residents are able to have a manicure and their hair done – which leaves them feeling and looking beautiful!
The weather has started to warm up here at Ferns so we have taken the opportunity to prepare the outdoor area for summer with a number of brightly coloured plants and hanging baskets – our residents have enjoyed spending some time in the garden soaking up the warm rays of the beautiful Yeovil sunshine!
The bird feeders have been restocked and we are enjoying watching the various types of birds that come to feed in the garden.
We celebrated two residents Birthdays in May and it was extra special to have their loved ones join in with the celebrations now that visiting is less restricted!
We hope you enjoy our update and are all well and continuing to stay safe. We hope to see you soon. With love from everyone at Ferns.
