Senses are sharp in our care home garden

Birch Green opened a new sensory garden as a further way of extending the facilities for its residents.


The new garden features plants with particular smell including many different kind of herbs and climbers which also react to touch as residents walk through them and admire them.


The garden was formally opened by John Hill, the father of former resident David, looked on by residents, staff and guests including West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper, who all enjoyed afternoon tea.


Phillipa McGrath, General Manager at Birch Green, said: “This is another extension of our gardens and a new way for residents to enjoy this space especially as the weather is getting better.


“The garden can be enjoyed by all, residents, relatives and visitors, offering a new experience in smell, touch and feel, and it has taken on a new dimension for everyone.”


The garden also features solar lighting and offers wheelchair access, with further additions planned to include a water feature.
