Gardens in these locations need to provide an outdoor space that can be used by the more mobile residents maybe for some regular exercise, to walk the dog, to sit and talk with friends and relatives or maybe even to do a bit of gardening standing up!
The gardens also need to be accessible to the less mobile residents including those in wheelchairs. The need for clean stable pathways, the use of scented and sensory planting and more importantly, the sense of “home” are so important in gardens for the elderly. Scotscape offer expert care home ground maintenance, ensuring that gardens play a big part in the care of the elderly.
The gardens may also include a specialist dementia area using stimulus from the past to further assist care.
Expertly maintained and well-designed gardens are essential for all business, helping to create that vital first impression to potential new clients, even more so when gardens can play such a strong role in the health and variety of care offered to the elderly.
We are always on hand to discuss encouraging biodiversity. It may be as simple as sowing some wild flower seed or letting a part of the lawn remain uncut to installing LivingPillars™, Living Walls with insect and bird boxes or planting micro-forests.
