Gardening is one the most popular recreational activities in the U.S., particularly among older adults, according to a March 2014 article in the “Journal of Aging Research.” As dementia progresses in a patient, the condition impacts his ability to perform certain activities. Remaining active and practicing skills linked to interests can help an individual feel more connected to his normal life and more in control. The installation of zen gardens - particularly in senior housing communities - with evidence-based designs can bring a sense of calm that no prescription can provide.
Following on our earlier work installing the landscape at the new Brightview South River senior living community, E-Landscape has now been selected to perform ongoing maintenance at the facility, located on Lee Airpark Drive in Edgewater. Brightview South River is Brightview's seventh senior living community in Maryland and its first assisted living community in Anne Arundel County. The community has 64 residences designated for assisted living and 26 in a separate wing for people with Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive impairments. The residences include studios, one-bedroom apartments and two bedroom apartments.
