The active residents have been busy in their garden planting a range of bulbs taking advantage of the recent spell of warm weather to get digging.
October is the best month to plant the bulbs as the soil is still warm and the bulbs can develop roots and become established before lying dormant in the winter.
Resident Hilary said: “It’s the perfect month to plant the bulbs and we’ve made sure to give them plenty of water.
“Hopefully we can enjoy seeing the bulbs shoot up in the spring and provide some lovely colour. It’s been very peaceful gardening and enjoying the colours of autumn.”
But that’s not the only activity residents have enjoyed this month.
Residents have also been enjoying some popular fit-baw, which has proved a great way to keeping fit and active.
Fit-baw is a chair-based activity that is popular in care homes, and it works on building and maintain upper and lower body exercises with a weighted ball called a futsal.
Resident Susan added: “I never thought I would see the day I would have enjoyed playing with a football.
“The football exercise sessions are lots of fun, we have all laughed a lot.”
Milngavie Manor’s Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach Morag Scott the activity had proved hugely sociable and hopefully residents would be joining more sessions run by trained fitness coaches.
She said: “It’s a wonderful way to keep active but also to get everyone laughing and chatting to one another.”
