The generosity of donors to our Office of Philanthropy has allowed us to expand the enrichment programs available to residents in our Convalescent & Rehabilitation Center (C&R). In addition to music, yoga, and massage therapies, C&R residents can now enjoy the benefits of connecting with nature as they choose plants and herbs to grow in our new garden therapy program. The indoor therapy garden and wellness program is coordinated through Eldergrow, an award-winning Seattle-based organization dedicated to bringing the joys and benefits of nature indoors.
The innovative wellness program includes a mobile, environmentally friendly sensory garden as well as fun, therapeutic gardening classes taught by expert Educators. They also provide garden maintenance and document sessions with therapeutic evaluations for each resident.
Thank you for giving generously through the Office of Philanthropy to support life-enriching programs, like Garden Therapy, throughout Panorama’s continuum of care.
