VANCOUVER, Wash. — Whether it’s snowing or sunny outside, residents living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia at Touchmark at Fairway Village now have the opportunity to spend time gardening indoors, day and night, no matter the weather. Touchmark is the first retirement community in Clark County to partner with Eldergrow™ and offer this unique experience.
“We are delighted to be working with Eldergrow and offering residents this indoor, elevated garden box along with regular garden-centered activities,” says Touchmark Vice President of Clinical Services Wendy Schrag, RN-BC.
Schrag first saw Eldergrow at a conference and instantly knew the benefits it would provide to those with advancing dementia.
“Gardening is a favorite hobby for many people,” she says. “It connects with people on so many levels and is a very rewarding activity offering numerous benefits.”
