Now that it’s starting to feel like summer, this week’s web pick feels extra appropriate. Gardens for People with Dementia is a guideline written by Kim Grove and is meant to help novice and expert gardeners design a garden for people with dementia. These helpful tips are written for any type of garden, whether for a private yard or for a nursing home.
Kim Grove, a garden designer and blogger, covers topics such as: how to structure the garden; safety considerations; creating the right path; which colours to use; safe plants and creating appropriate lighting. Her blog expands on some of the topics she touches on in the guideline and may be worth a look.
