An emerging trend in healthcare and senior living integrates garden spaces into overall facility design in conjunction with client-centered, cost-effective care. This session provides participants with knowledge of current research on the value and benefits of gardens in senior living, and how personal factors and the trajectory of change in the aging process influences an individual’s use of gardens. Attendees will explore how to translate this knowledge into cost-effective design of garden spaces that fit residents’ preferences for use. Presenters will also discuss how to proactively leverage facility gardens as an effective marketing tool.
