Green Fingers Club
St Cyrils is a Specialist Rehabilitation Unit, supporting those with complex conditions. The Unit offers both inpatient and outpatient and respite care packages tailored to individual need. Our aim is to provide an environment that is caring, welcoming and with helpful, professional and helpful staff. St Cyril’s provides a calming, therapeutic environment to assist patients to achieve the optimum level of care.
Within the grounds, patients have access to a sensory garden area. The arrival of the greenhouse will support patient’s wellbeing and provide an opportunity for staff, patients and relatives to become involved in growing flowers and vegetables all year round.
St Cyril’s has developed a new gardening group, called the ‘Green Fingers Club’, which involves patients and families in the planning and development of the sensory garden with seasonal events throughout the year to support patients’ therapy.
The real benefit of having a greenhouse is that patients, carers and staff can contribute at lots of different levels and in lots of different ways, always with a positive outcome.
We are delighted to have our new greenhouse which was kindly donated and constructed by the team at Gabriel Ash.
We now look forward to a long and successful gardening season.
