Having a Laugh

Appraisal of a Trellis Demo Session at a care home in Perthshire, winter 2017-18

The session went very well. All the residents enjoyed the session and visit. Jenny was so nice - very friendly and helped residents – when needed.

Our residents are still speaking about planting the bulbs and very interested, especially if any green shoots are showing through. I felt the session was very well done, not rushed at all and time given to each person. Two of our residents worked well together and enjoyed sharing the tray of compost to pot bulbs for others not so able. It was good to see that and we all had a laugh.

The training materials, content and teaching style were excellent. Our residents were very involved and enjoyed the group activity very much and meeting and chatting with Jenny. The session was an excellent idea – I feel we were fortunate to have a visit. It’s so nice for the residents to look forward to a hyacinth in a pretty pot. Very good selection of pots and bulbs. I’m encouraging flower arranging and pictures to be made for each person’s own room – it keeps independence.

Thank you!
