Dementia is one of the biggest challenges that our society faces today. People affected by dementia often have to give up the activities they want or need to do due to inaccessible and unsupportive environments, this includes gardening. Gardens are incredibly important and a constant feature throughout our life, especially so for older people and people affected by dementia.
The importance of gardens increases especially as we get older, as a place to relax and recover, as well as receive multi-sensory stimulation from the environment around us. The therapeutic power of nature is well-known, and gardens can be a place of sensory delight for those living with dementia.
Then why not join us for a cup of tea and a chat at Trinity Garden, the newly opened dementia friendly garden.
You will find us at the rear of Christ the King Church, 88a Manchester Road, Walkden, M28 3LN
There is also an indoor room you can make use of with a toilet suitable for those with a disability.
