Studies have found that:

  • the presence of fresh flowers triggers happy emotions
  • Flowers heightens feelings of life satisfaction
  •  Flowers affects social behavior in a positive way
  • People feel less anxiety and worry when fresh flowers are present

The exponential growth of Blooms that Brighten, Inc., the enthusiasm of our volunteers, and the many beautiful and thoughtful notes we receive from floral recipients help us to evaluate the effectiveness of our efforts. Thoughtful suggestions we receive from the care community administrators are always taken into consideration and have helped us improve our services. For example, we learned that space was an issue for many residents.  We acquired vases that are easy for recipients to hold, display their floral arrangements and we can recycle for another visit.

Blooms that Brighten, Inc. is a scheduled activity at the following care communities:

  • Consulate Health Care of Williamsburg
  • Dominion Village of Williamsburg
  • Edgeworth Park at New Town
  • Envoy of Williamsburg
