The design of the Alzheimer’s Garden provides opportunities for the elders to enjoy nature and the outdoor environment in a safe, secure and peaceful setting. The walking path gently curves through the garden. There are places to stop and sit and to enjoy nature. The garden is enclosed by a decorative fence so the elders can be outside in a safe area. The herbs that grow in the garden provide an opportunity for baking rosemary muffins and mint for making sun tea.
