Dementia Friendly Gardening

The Food Partnership offer both cookery and gardening activities for people with dementia and their carers, funded by the NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group. All sessions are delivered by Food Partnership staff alongside trained volunteers.

Gardening is a wonderful activity to help improve wellbeing, get outdoors and take time to notice nature. Our weekly sessions provide a gentle, regular activity with a friendly group and a chance to build confidence. There is lots of national evidence about the benefits of gardening for people with dementia.

 

I think it has been wonderful for me and we have made some good friends. Everyone has really gelled together and supported one another – we’ve had some great chats… Just being in the garden is wonderful.
