women looking at flowersGardening 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.

When: Weekly sessions, 2-4pm, for up to 8 weeks. Sessions run from Wednesday 29th April to 17th June 2020.

Where: The Garden House, 5 Warleigh Road, Brighton BN1 4NT (between London & Ditchling Road), accessed via a side gate.

The Garden House is a beautiful walled garden which sits behind the houses on Warleigh Road. It has a heated room where participants can sit and enjoy a cup of tea. There is also a toilet and hand washing facilities. Please note the garden is a no-smoking zone.

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.
