Long Term Living Magazine: Residents reconnect with the soil at LA Jewish Home

Sandra Hoban, Executive Editor at Long Term Living Magazine, wrote this wonderful piece in their blog yesterday, entitled Residents reconnect with the soil at LA Jewish Home. We wanted to share an excerpt of it with you.

In this 100% organic garden, each plant has a therapeutic use for residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The calming effects of lavender, chamomile and mint are found in scented wands and used in teas. The garden is also a pleasant escape for residents, staff and families.

It’s clear that Leitch had to put a lot of thought into planning. “I had to be mindful of drought-tolerant plants,” she says. “I wanted them to be native to California.”

It's always nice to be recognized for one of the amazing services we provide our seniors. We'd like to thank Long Term Living Magazine and Sandra for writing such an amazing piece. Click the link above to read the entire blog.

Also, take a look at the article we wrote in our News and Updates page about Susan Leitch and the G•Z community garden.
