Cartref Annwyl Fan residents star in ITV News coverage for their beach inspired garden
Cartref Annwyl Fan, our care home in Ammanford, recently starred on ITV News after team members helped create a beach themed garden for its residents.
ITV Wales spoke to residents about how the garden which had a caravan, beach hut, deck chairs and an imported shingle and sandy shore benefitted them at the home, which specialises in residential, nursing and dementia care.
The home later appeared on their 6:00pm news broadcast.
General Manager at Cartref Annwyl Fan, Adele Williams said: “We decided to create a caravan and beach garden, after we asked our residents what they missed most and they said holidays by the seaside.
“This garden allows them to reminisce about happy times, create conversation and feelings of well-being. It also allows the team and family members to get out and enjoy a little bit of sunshine.”
Resident Betty Potter, 85 said: “Every day I come out to read in the caravan, be out in the fresh air with friends, all enjoying ourselves, it is very nice indeed!”
