We have gathered some creative and fun Walking with Nature ideas to help keep adults in care homes active over winter.
• Logging steps walked using our Care About Walking wall chart
• Creating a taste and smell sensory walk
• Making bird fat balls to watch birds feeding
• Gathering natural and festive items to create a reminisce sensory box
Muirton House care home in Blairgowrie who tested the ideas reported:
My group loves to be outside and as we have been limited in our activities over the last 18 months it’s important to get fresh air.
Being outside gives us all the opportunity to talk about what’s happening in the garden and to watch the red squirrels and deer that visit.
