Ferrars Hall Care Home welcomes unusual new residents
Ferrars Hall Care Home recently welcomed some unusual new residents, fourteen birds! The Huntingdon care home has had a fabulous outdoor aviary built complete with nesting area, feeders, shelter and landscaped garden. There are new fourteen birds in total, including colourful canaries and some Bengalese Finches.
The birds will add interest to the garden and encourage residents to spend time outside and enjoying the sights and sounds of the birds. Residents at the luxury Huntingdon care home will be able to feed the birds which will help to give them a sense of purpose and increase wellbeing.
The aviary was built by the home’s maintenance manager, Paul Roddis, the residents and staff at the home were so impressed by his handy work that they have named the aviary ‘Roddis Hall’ in his honour. The care home held a naming ceremony and resident Horace gave a speech and presented Paul with the name plaque to finish the aviary.
The birds were donated by Home Manager Julie Britten. “The aviary is already very popular with the residents” said Julie “it’s been lovely to see people coming outside to see the birds and talk to them, they’ve enjoyed seeing the birds settle into their new home”.
