Nestled in the charming north Kent countryside, Hazelwood Care Home is embracing the spirit of January as the RSPB's Big Bird Watch Month takes flight. This purpose-built care home, dedicated to enhancing the lives of its residents, has transformed the month into a celebration of avian wonders, offering residents a unique opportunity to connect with nature.
The residents at Hazelwood Care Home are enthusiastically participating in the RSPB's Big Bird Watch, armed with personalised bird fact files that add a touch of educational flair to the event. The home has set the stage for several bird-themed projects throughout January, turning the care home into a hub of creative and nature-inspired activities.
The first feather in their cap is a captivating exploration of the peacock, a majestic bird native to India and often considered a symbol of good fortune and prosperity. Residents engaged in a delightful group painting session, pooling their creativity to craft a magnificent peacock masterpiece. This vibrant creation now graces the lounge on the Poppy Unit, a visual feast that radiates positivity for residents, families, and dedicated carers alike.
Hazelwood Care Home's dedication to providing not just care but also meaningful experiences shines through in events like the RSPB's Big Bird Watch. By fostering a connection with the natural world, residents are not only enjoying the beauty of avian creatures but also engaging in collaborative and therapeutic activities that contribute to their overall well-being.
As the month unfolds, Hazelwood Care Home remains committed to making every day special for its residents, and the RSPB's Big Bird Watch event is just one of the many ways they're spreading wings of joy and creativity throughout the home.
At Hazelwood Care Home, it is important to us that we take the time to learn about our residents and acknowledge their lives, experiences, and achievements. We do all that we can to recognise them through activities and events and celebrate them. We are proud of the person-centred approach that we have to both the personal and medical support that we provide to our residents.
