AGELESS GARDENS S1E2- HEALING PLANTS: Hospice patients use gardening as therapy, for the aging body. An engineer practices bonsai gardening to restore his mind. A 93 year-old retired nurse uses gardening as a quiet time to remember loved ones. A therapist creates a hospital garden that gives patients a place to relax and restore.
Ageless Gardens is a visual celebration of gardens – and gardeners – with a special emphasis on the role gardens can play in healthy aging.
The physical, mental, and social aspects of gardening can be important therapeutic factors in health and wellness. Gardening can bring us food, exercise, and keep our minds sharp as we age. Learning to adapt to changing physical, familial, and social situations is key to continuing to garden into our retirement years.
