Dementia Connections | Nurtured by Nature
A workshop for care partners
Spending time in Nature benefits every aspect of our health and wellbeing.
Nurtured by Nature workshops enable those who love and care for people with dementia to experience these benefits first-hand.
Workshops are presented in dementia care homes, retirement villages, botanical gardens and nature reserves.
A workshop for carers in Kirstenbosch Gardens
Understanding dementia from people that have journeyed with their parents is so much better.
We get to understand that you can turn it into a positive, loving experience, bringing closure and understanding. So much love.
Create a gift to take home
The workshop has presented a new avenue for me to explore that may equip me to support persons and families in maintaining quality of life throughout their journey with dementia.
I didn’t imagine how much Nature plays a role in your life.
Learning to just take all in from nature – smell, feel; what a big input Nature has on a person’s wellbeing
Enjoy gentle exercise
Feel your stress dissolve as you experience
the calming effect of quiet time in a garden
The workshop was rich with experiencing nature.
I am feeling calm yet energised, encouraged to think about how I can use this info in my situation.
I heard people’s stories of living with and caring for someone with dementia
which is more meaningful than a textbook explanation. I loved being in the garden and potting a plant.
Get creative with Nature-based crafts
Meet and share others who love and care for
people living with dementia
Inspired by the connection between persons and the environment and the impact it has on oneself.
I was very interested in the theoretical model and application,
loved the garden walk – such a lovely tool to stimulate conversation in a non-threatening way.
