We have secured funding from Unlimited and the Big Local Central Jarrow group to work with Roseway Care Home to develop their outdoor space.
Roseway has a high number of residents living with dementia, many of them wheelchair users. The plan is to develop the garden to make it more accessible for residents to enjoy their green space and to deliver nature workshops and get everyone involved in all aspects of the garden. Lots of sensory, seasonal activities that can be enjoyed by all.
Staff would also like to open their doors to the community bringing in people for workshops, meetings and classes to promote inclusion and community cohesion for their residents.
We are so excited to be part of this project, planning is already underway and we will be posting lots more about it in the near future.
