Resident Judith Bosley with her flowers

The snow might still have been falling in New England, but flowers were in bloom on April 5, 2016 at Life Care Center of Leominster, Massachusetts.


Approximately 25 residents enjoyed making flower bouquet crafts that afternoon, a day after 6 inches of snow fell in the city.


“You cannot trust mother nature,” said resident Judith Bosley.


Diane Gallant, activity director at Life Care Center of Leominster, provided scrapbook paper, foam pieces, pom-poms and glue, and activities associates helped residents cut flower pieces and manage the glue.


“We have a very creative group at Life Care Center of Leominster,” said Gallant. “We utilize many of their craft pieces throughout the year as table centerpieces, which they enjoy.”


Gallant also hosts a craft program at the Leominster Senior Center.


“Diane and her staff have developed many activities in which our residents are able to express their talents through art, exercise and music,” said William Reidt, executive director.
