The Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre’s beautification program got a boost recently when members of the Rebecca Chapter No. 4, Prince Hall Affiliate, created a garden in the atrium of the Robert Smith Ward.
The garden marks the first phase of a beautification project designed for the area, which is housed in the new Child and Adolescent Robert Smith (CARS) Building at the facility on Fox Hill Road. The delightfully colourful additions included hibiscus, petunias and peonies.
Sister Fredericka Wallace who supervises the Robert Smith Ward, described the contribution as a “beautiful change” and one that would certainly brighten the day of staff and clients alike. She added, “In my book they get two green thumbs up”.
The Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre is the country’s national resource for psychiatric, geriatric and substance abuse services; it was established in 1956.
