An afternoon was spent at Sanders, Wyevale Garden Centre in Burnham-on-Sea. Accompanied by Casa di Lusso’s Activity Coordinator, Louise, and Care Assistant, Rona, the residents and relative made the short trip to Sanders.
They enjoyed looking at the beautiful plants, meeting the animals and browsing the clothing range.

Finally after a walk around the centre, they made their way to the café for a well deserved break.

Most noteworthy, Sanders Garden Centre presented resident and her husband with a present, because they would often go to the garden centre.
