Gibraltar Nursing Home in Monmouth is proud to announce their newly developed sensory garden designed to give its residents, who are affectionately referred to as family members, a place to relax under the parasols, socialise and get back to nature in a way that engages all the senses.

The garden incorporates a variety of wonderful features crafted from upcycled materials and is a true collaborative effort between the team and family members. From a handmade babbling brook that incorporates pebbles the family members painted together, a beautiful marigold fountain, to a pristinely kept flower and vegetable garden that family members have helped sow the seeds of, the garden offers a multitude of different elements for the community here to enjoy. They also have a range of gardening tools for family members who want to engage in meaningful occupation out in the fresh air.

One of the highlights of the garden is an upcycled chandelier that team leader Bridget saved from a skip, which she then took apart to hang individual strands from the herb greenhouse, creating a mesmerising rainbow effect when the sun bounces off the glass, and a comforting song as they tinkle in the breeze.

Extra care has been taken to ensure the garden is wheelchair friendly and accessible to all, so everyone living here can enjoy every aspect this garden has to offer.

What people say…

Overall Experience 5 out of 5
We had found Gibraltar Nursing Home to be a very caring place, and nothing is too much trouble. I have already recommended it to a few people. The staff are extremely friendly and more than willing to help in any way.

Overall Experience 5 out of 5
My Mom went into Gibraltar House 4/2/19. She had a fall in October 2018, been in hospital seven weeks, to an assessment centre and finally to her forever nursing home. I cannot fault any of the staff, from your first point of contact, via the receptionists, to the care staff, the nursing staff and housekeeping team. My Mom was not eating and wouldn’t get out of the bed. With gentle encouragement, she is starting to eat a little more and actually got out of the bed into a wheelchair the other day. We are so happy. Gibraltar House is really clean. It is like a home from home, and I love visiting my mum there. The staff really do have my mum’s best interest at heart. Thank you all so much.
