Beyond The Pandemic
The pandemic has been hard and isolated us so much. But, we overcame this with open access to fresh air,exercise and recently more expansive social experiences. Fun and quality time. We have been both creative and safe in finding solutions and working with local authority to ensure Segal Gardens promotes safety but also opportunities. We are very proud of everything we have achieve.
National Picnic Week
So did you know we have a national picnic week? Well here it is! A lovely day and any excuse for a picnic is welcome!
Throughout the pandemic we have faced isolation and restrictions. The key has been the creation of events and fun. Join us for our Wimbledon day
11th November 2020. We remembered the sacrifices and deaths of armed force members in the line of duty. We raised money for the Poppy Appeal which was a charity very important to us all #poppyappeal2020. A big acknowledgement to all the hard work that has gone into this event.
The social restrictions continue for us all and it is so hard for our residents as they are perhaps impacted the most as their normal routines, opportunities and important family time is either restricted or completely on hold. It is important that we look for ways to bridge this and we have implemented so many opportunities that are safe, socially engaging, creative and fun.
Halloween is a time of tradition and fun. We used our site to create Halloween themed games, a spooky ghost walk around our sensory garden and ‘trick or treat’ fun. We know it was such a fun evening and we are now planning our next fun event.
Segal Wild West Day
‘Just thought l would let you know, showed my family and friends the photos on Facebook, with all the bad press care homes have received. They have said that you are a credit to your profession. Xx‘ Family Feedback October 2020
So as we are all socially distancing ourselves the challenge for front line care services like Segal Gardens is a difficult one. Our staff are being beyond wonderful to ensure they are creative, engaging and supportive to our service users at this difficult time. The restrictions imply our service users not seeing their families and not enjoying their normal day to day activities and experiences. Together we bridge the gap. We hope you enjoy our images from our Wild West theme day which was loved by all as we had music, food, games and fancy dress. Watch this space for more events.
Segal Scarecrow Festival –
We hope you enjoy our recent scarecrow festival. It was great fun and in this current time of restrictions it was a real ‘come together’ and ‘shared’ experience.
Pictures are a moment in time that captures something very special. A moment that can never be repeated and precious to hold and enjoy.
We hope our image selections create a small insight into Segal Gardens, the opportunities, the happiness and the passion that we hold strive to promote.
