Hove residents go on a mission to help give their Home a makeover

Residents at RMBI Care Co. Home Barford Court, in Hove, recently enjoyed a trip to a local garden centre. As part of their regular out-of-home activities, the residents travelled via the Home’s mini bus to the garden centre, accompanied by Barford Court’s dedicated staff. The aim of the trip was to get ideas for the care home, which the residents are helping to redecorate.

Ninety-four-year-old resident Beryl said: “It was so nice to be out and about and to get out in the mini bus!” Eighty-eight-year-old resident Joyce added: “I really liked looking at the bright coloured flowers.”

The residents not only looked for plants, but also for some stuffed animals to make Barford Court even more homely. Michelle Dyer, Activities Coordinator at Barford Court, helped them collect the best items. She said: “I had a lovely time exploring the garden centre with the residents. It was so nice to see the smiles on their faces!”

 RMBI Home Barford Court, in Hove, is run by RMBI Care Co., part of the Masonic Charitable Foundation. For more information, please visit:
