Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Volunteers Love of Gardening on Display at Center
Alex and Lee have been volunteering at ManorCare Health Services – Delray since 2018 by bringing their dog, Katie, for pet therapy visits. During their time volunteering, they have built relationships with several residents and consider them a part of their family.
Recently, residents expressed to Alex and Lee their love for gardening. Coincidentally, they had just completed a gardening project at their home and felt the desire to use their passion for gardening to help enrich the lives of others at the center. Alex and Lee got to work on planting the garden in the courtyard for all the patients, residents and employees at the center to enjoy.
When the garden was complete, ManorCare held an opening ceremony and dedicated the courtyard in honor of Alex and Lee for their donations and time spent rejuvenating the courtyard and building a beautiful garden for everyone to enjoy. A plaque was hung in their name and the employees presented them with a gift.
The employees, patients and residents at ManorCare – Delray are incredibly grateful for the kindness bestowed upon them by Alex and Lee.
