Bexley dementia sufferers to benefit from garden improvement funding at care homes
DEMENTIA sufferers at four Bexley care homes are set to benefit from a funding boost, which will be used to improve garden areas.
Raised flower beds and vegetable plots are some of the ideas to be implemented thanks to the £310,000 funding from the Government.
Dementia Inspired Gardens will be developed at Abbotsleigh Mews in Sidcup, Cedar Court in Abbey Wood, Marlborough Court in Thamesmead and Adelaide Care Centre in Bexleyheath.
The designs will also include clear and wide pathways to allow residents easy access to a space where they can rest and get some fresh air.
Manager of Abbotsleigh Mews Tracey Cheeseman said: “We feel really fortunate to have been given this opportunity to further enhance the lives of people living with dementia, which is very important to us.”
Each of the care homes has drawn up a plan for their gardens, which will be ready for use by March next year.
