Care Home Welcome Green-Fingered Volunteers

St Stephens Care HomeSt Stephen’s Care Home in Sandbach was delighted to welcome a team of volunteers, who recently helped redevelop their gardens.

A team of 20 volunteers from Winsford based company Essential Cuisine worked together to transform their gardens into a more accessible and interesting space.

St Stephens, which is based in London Road in Elworth, supports 40 people who have age-related health needs or live with dementia. It is part of the national social care charity, Community Integrated Care.

The dedicated team overhauled the gardens – painting and fixing fences, tidying their greenhouse and sheds, as well as planting flowers and cutting back trees. They also added a creative touch, converting a shed to look like a beach hut.

The St Stephen’s team have developed plans to further this work, by adding a new patio and installing planters that residents can maintain. This work will help to create a more stimulating and engaging space for residents.

Wendy Langley, Manager of St Stephen’s Care Home, says: “This work has transformed the living environment at our home, giving our residents a beautiful space they can enjoy throughout the year. I’d like to thank Essential Cuisine for their hard work, kindness and community spirit. We are excited to continue to build on this work and make our gardens an even better place for our residents.”
