Through the on-site, organic gardening program, Residents have the opportunity to engage with their peers, enjoy the fresh air, and cultivate the food they eat.
What Makes us Unique
All physical and mental abilities can participate in our Garden Activities Program.
Tasks are individualized to the Resident’s abilities and interests to ensure that they experience success.
Working with others provides belonging; given choices provides feelings of influence; contributing provides a sense of purpose.
Completing a project provides feelings of accomplishment – a focus on what they CAN do.
The benefit of physical exercise: Gardening provides a means to get people outside, to participate, to walk, bend, balance, and reach.
The benefit of cognitive exercise: Gardening is a mechanism to improve orientation, increase attention span and promote the use of logic and judgement.
The benefit of socialization: Improves self-esteem and confidence in working with others to achieve goals.
Our Extended Family Residences™ allow us to provide a high quality, meaningful life, without regard to age, diagnosis, or ability. As a result, our Residents – your loved ones – are Living Well Each Day!
