Embracing Nature’s Healing Powers.
At Village Point, we offer evidence-based therapeutic horticulture classes including culinary harvesting, garden art, and nature classes in partnership with Eldergrow™, a company that connects residents to nature through innovative gardening. In our sensory garden, residents engage with nature physically, socially, cognitively, and spiritually.
Year-round therapeutic benefits.
Nurturing a plant is a very calming experience. In addition to physical benefits, such as increased hand-eye coordination, finger flexion, and better balance, working with plants builds confidence and self-esteem. When we see a seed germinate and develop, it proves that our actions have made a difference. As the plant grows, so does our own sense of personal success. Our sensory garden provides easy access for residents to stand or sit while participating in hands-on activities that measure wellness goals, such as sensory stimulation.
