How this cause brings people in the community together

As people age, and particularly when people develop limiting illnesses such as dementia, they are forced to stop doing things they love, such as gardening. Our disability/dementia-friendly garden allows people to continue to undertake these activities in a safe space. Importantly, this simple activity that we all take for granted also helps maintain physical activity, cognitive function & social interaction – all of which help someone who has dementia to remain stimulated, and feel valued & helpful. Gardening keeps people in the ‘here and now’ & provides the camaraderie of sharing a task. Gardens are also calm spaces that help to develop relationships through talking & outdoor stimulation. Our garden will provide this experience to hundreds of isolated people.
