Bird is the word! Bury St Edmunds care home residents spread their wings to celebrate the best of British birds


Residents at two care homes in Bury St Edmunds are gearing up to take part in some avian-themed activities this January.

Bird is the word! Bury St Edmunds care home residents spread their wings to celebrate the best of British birds


"Residents love taking part in nature-themed activities and learning more about the beautiful environment we live in."
Sharlene Van Tonder



Inspired by the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which takes place from Saturday 25th January to Monday 27th January, residents will be taking part in a variety of activities related to our feathered friends, as well as topping up their bird feeders and counting the birds in their garden.

 

Alongside Care UK homes across the country, residents at Glastonbury Court, on Glastonbury Road, and Davers Court, on Shakers Lane, will be celebrating the best of British birds by creating some home-made bird feeders.

 

Residents at Glastonbury Court are also looking forward to a visit from the Bury St Edmunds Beavers group, who will be coming along to take part in some bird watching.

 

Sharlene Van Tonder, home manager at Glastonbury Court and Davers Court, explained why exploring our wildlife is an important activity: “Residents love taking part in nature-themed activities and learning more about the beautiful environment we live in.

 

“Spending time outdoors and connecting with the nature around us can prove to be beneficial for both the physical and mental wellbeing of older people – particularly those living with dementia. While it is a calming, peaceful activity, the distinctive sounds and vibrant colours of the garden are also great for providing sensory stimulation.  

 

“It’s brilliant to be getting involved with such a meaningful initiative and encouraging everyone to take notice of the beautiful wildlife Britain has to offer. We’re looking forward to welcoming the members of the Bury St Edmunds Brownies group into the home to celebrate the best of British birds with us too!”
