Old Norse Lodge residents where in for a treat this week with 2 visitors attending the care home. Firstly a furry companion as the residents were treated to the presence of a therapy dog named Floss and the beauty of floral arrangements as a community member shared the joy of flower arranging.
To kick the week off a gentleman and his Therapy Dog, Floss, visited Old Norse Lodge. Therapy dogs, known for their gentle and soothing nature, bring comfort and joy to residents. The team at Old Norse Lodge enthusiastically welcomed this visit, recognising the positive impact such interactions can have on the well-being of the residents. Many residents have a special affinity for dogs, and Floss's presence created moments of warmth and connection.
Later on in the week a community member visited the home and generously provided flowers for all the residents. In addition to the thoughtful gift, she conducted a class on the art of flower arranging. Residents eagerly participated, learning the intricacies of creating beautiful floral displays. The activity not only sparked creativity but also offered a therapeutic and aesthetically pleasing experience for the residents.
Following the flower arranging class, each resident proudly displayed their completed floral arrangements in their bedrooms. The vibrant and thoughtfully crafted displays not only added a touch of natural beauty to the living spaces but also served as a testament to the residents' creativity and newfound skills.
These visits from Floss, the Therapy Dog, and the flower arranging class exemplify the commitment of Old Norse Lodge to creating cherished moments for its residents. These thoughtful and engaging activities contribute to the well-rounded and fulfilling experiences within the community, fostering a positive and vibrant atmosphere at Old Norse Lodge.
