Our Well-being in Nature sessions provide the opportunity to experience the countless benefits that a greater connection with nature can offer, as well as the chance to meet others and even make new friends within a safe and supportive group environment.

Connecting with nature has been shown to: help to enhance our mental health and emotional well-being; have a soothing effect on our senses; improve concentration levels, memory recall and problem-solving skills; plus release tension held in our muscles and joints. The natural world really does possess the amazing potential to have a positive impact on our bodies and minds and enhance the quality of our lives.

Well-being in Nature at Stanley’s Garden

We run weekly sessions at Stanley’s Garden, a beautiful community space situated in Worle, North Somerset. This garden has been designed to offer a place in which members of the local community can relax, re-energise and enjoy the outdoors, as well as taking up opportunities to learn new nature-based crafts and gardening skills.

We offer two different types of Well-being in Nature sessions at Stanley’s Garden, which both run on a Tuesday and are free of charge:

The morning session welcomes older people living within the community who have received a recent dementia diagnosis or who are living with the early symptoms of dementia. The group also welcomes those who support them e.g. relatives, friends, carers etc.

The afternoon session is designed to support older people living within the community who are experiencing difficulties with their emotional health e.g. anxiety, low mood, social isolation.

Stanley’s Garden is fully accessible and has the advantage of on-site parking. There is also a shelter for when the elements are against us, and access to toilet facilities nearby. Refreshments are provided in each session (as a cuppa and a biscuit always seems to taste nicer when enjoyed outdoors!).

Well-being in Nature at Care Homes

We can also bring our Well-being in Nature sessions to you and your residents in Care Homes. The perfect way to allow residents to experience the garden in a different way, activities include nature-based crafts, multi-sensory experiences and reminiscing on spent time in the natural world.
