Hamilton care home is branching out with yarn bombs




Hamilton care home is branching out with yarn bombs

A Hamilton care home is entering into the spirit of beautification and fun with residents by organising a yarn bombing tree.

 

Yarn bombing started when a sewing shop knitted a sleeve for a door handle as a marketing gimmick. These colourful displays brighten up urban areas of the world and have now expanded to telephone poles, socks on statues, bike racks and trees.

 

Avonbridge care home, on Old Avon Road, is creating its own yarn bombing tree and is encouraging people to create and send colourful additions to make the tree bright and beautiful during the autumn and winter months.

 

Kelly O’Neil, Activities Co-ordinator at Avonbridge Care Home, said: “As the days draw in we like to keep our residents cheery and bright with stimulating and colourful decorations.

“This is very important for mental health especially in the winter months.”

 

Avonbridge have received its first parcel of yarn bombs for its tree, all the way from Leeds. Hopefully it's the first of many.

 

Yarn bombs for the tree can be sent to Avonbridge Care Home 50 Old Avon Road, Hamilton ML3 7BT

 

Avonbridge care home forms part of Larchwood Care and is managed by Healthcare Management Solutions. 84% of Larchwood Care Homes are rated as ‘Good’ or above by the CQC, above the industry average.
