    Haven’s Eldergrow Garden

    Posted December 02, 2018 in News

    This year’s newest addition to Inland Christian Home’s Inland Haven is Eldergrow’s mobile sensory garden. The team at Eldergrow Educators offer therapeutic gardening classes with seasonal plant deliveries and garden maintenance. There are so many evident-based benefits of therapeutic horticulture to those who have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or Dementia such as: • Improves motor skills • Reduces risk factors for dementia • Elevates mood • Improves sleep • Reduces falls • Reduces agitation • Improves self-esteem • Acts as an antidepressant Our Haven Residents are using their senses such as smell and touch to help identify different varieties we have in the Eldergrow planter box. They are engaging in plant identification in the garden as well as sharing their own personal stories of plants they used to grow. The Eldergrow class is every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 3pm.
