Earth Day 2022
Benefits of Gardening For Elders
Are you looking to get into gardening or to help a loved one get started? Gardening season is upon us and to help celebrate earth day, we’re highlighting some of the many benefits of gardening for elders. There are countless physical, mental, and emotional benefits that come with gardening. Gardening for elders specifically helps to:

  • Decrease dementia risk 
  • Increase physical activity
  • Help combat loneliness
  • Increase attentiveness and memory
  • Assist in strengthening mobility and flexibility 
  • Provide access to nutrient dense produce 
  • Reduce stress levels
  • Improve sleep 
  • Promote stimulation, relaxation and mindfulness 
  • Utilize motor skills 
  • Promote optimal vitamin D levels
  • Provide a sense of accomplishment 

While many elders deal with mobility or financial limitations, there are many ways to make a senior friendly garden...

Celebrity illnesses typically bring awareness not otherwise thought of. Unfortunately at SRC, aphasia is a rare but definitely not uncommon condition we see in some of our clients that results in significant care management needs with corresponding legal and financial risks.
If you or a loved one has developed aphasia, please come see us to assess your care and asset protection options.
