North Point Village, an assisted living and memory care community in Spokane, is helping seniors living with dementia enjoy the benefits of the great outdoors through gardening while also making new friends and encouraging intergenerational activities with kids.
In June, science teacher Bryce Borland and his class from Highland Middle School and Mark Peterson from local news station, KXLY, stopped by to help put in gardening beds for the seniors of North Point Village in their courtyard. The students put in the fertilizer as well as new flowers and plants. The kids visit local communities like North Point Village to provide friendship and flowers through their community gardening program.
The residents of North Point Village have been busy planting flowers, plants, and more. The benefits of gardening are great for seniors living with dementia. According to recent studies, gardening has been reported to be effective in improving sleep, agitation, and cognition in dementia patients.
