Is Betty’s joy at wonky bean a winner for Wentworth Court?

Cheltenham

A picture snapped at Wentworth Court nursing home in Cheltenham of a resident’s joy at discovering a wonky runner bean has reached the final of a national competition.

 

Betty Price, a resident at the dementia-specialist home on Village Road was helping to harvest the vegetables along with activities coordinator, Suzanne Meadows when the moment was captured by freelance photographer and former Gloucestershire Media picture editor, Mikal Ludlow.

 

The picture was entered by the home into the Towergate Insurance Towergate in Bloom competition, which aims to encourage care homes to share pictures and stories about the therapeutic benefits of gardening.

 

The winning photograph will be decided by public vote and Wentworth Court is now asking people in Gloucestershire to take a minute to vote for Betty and help them win the £250 prize.

 

Home manager, Gez Ossai said: “Our award-winning gardens have amazing benefits for our residents who live with dementia, providing a calm place to relax with family and friends.

 

“Residents help to look after the plants, which help to stimulate memories and can ease anxieties.  Our raised beds have been designed at waist-height, so the residents can easily pick herbs and veggies that we use in the kitchen.

 

We’d love to win the £250 prize, which will go towards gardening equipment and plants which will be of real value to everyone who lives at Wentworth Court.”

 

To vote for Betty and Wentworth Court, please visit the Towergate in Bloom website. Voting closes on Friday 21 September at 4pm.

 

Wentworth Court opened in May 2015 and provides long-term and respite care to more than 60 residents living with dementia. The home received a ‘good’ rating in all categories from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in September 2017.
