An abundance of lavender in the neighborhood inspired Hummingbird Activity Specialist and her client George to make lavender posies for the staff at his home in assisted living. He cut sprigs of the flower and tied them into small bundles using pretty ribbon.
The project enlisted his gardening skills and invited him to choose ribbon color as well as arrange the flowers in a basket. While working, George proudly shared stories of his wife’s successful herb business. His memory connected him emotionally to his family. Finally, he selected a posie and gave it to one of the staff members. In appreciation of giving and receiving, they both smiled.
