Widnes Residential Care Home Dedicates Garden To Late Friend

 A residential care home for disabled adults with complex care needs in Widnes has celebrated the life of a lady who lived at the service who recently passed away with a dedication in its garden.

The staff at Warrington Road wanted to transform the garden space for the individuals they support, bringing colour to the patio area.

In addition to plants and garden ornaments, they created a rockery in memory of their friend Josie Meaney.

They painted pebbles in memory of Josie, then placed them at the base of the rockery and added some solar lights so the garden could be enjoyed in the darker evenings too.

Mandy Williams-Vance, Team Leader at Warrington Road, said: “We revamped the garden as part of the Salutem in Bloom initiative, and we’re delighted with how lovely the garden looks.

“It’s important to us that the individuals we support are fully involved with our decisions, and when they suggested creating a memorial to Josie, I thought it was a brilliant idea. She was a lovely lady, and we were great friends, it is really nice to have somewhere we can go in the garden to remember her.”
