AGELESS GARDENS S2E4 – ACTIVE IN THE GARDEN: A retired hospital administrator adapts his home garden in order to age in place. Dementia patients experience memory-triggering touches and smells in a tactile garden. A long-time professional gardener demonstrates his physical dexterity and knowledge of plants. An artist and her woodworker husband decorate birdhouses for their backyard oasis.
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.
