Forget Me Nots - Dementia friendly gardening

Mayfield Nurseries provides a safe and supportive environment for people with Dementia to build confidence and develop new skills through a fun and caring approach to gardening.
 
At Mayfield we:
  • Have trained staff who understand the issues and challenges faced by people with Dementia.
  • Provide a tailored gardening plan with a person-centered approach.
  • Offer a wide range of gardening activities for both people with Dementia and carers.

What can gardening at Mayfield do for you?

Research shows that Dementia gardening:

  • Can double overall wellbeing in six months.
  • Promotes an feeling of self-identity and independence.
  • Improves mood and orientation.
  • Reduces anxiety and offers a sense of achievement.

At Mayfield Nurseries we understand that everyone has a different experience with Dementia; we are here to help you re-connect with friends and family.
