Gardening continues to be one of the most important pastimes for older adults, but even healthy seniors can lose interest in this hobby because of brief illness, injury, or lack of companionship. That's why the support and help of a family member or professional caregiver can be so important. It's a message that's being spread nationally by Rebecca Kolls, host of the nationally syndicated Rebecca's Garden television show.
Earlier this spring Kolls was a guest at NGA's National Garden Month kickoff celebration in Washington, D.C. She spoke about her public education campaign with Home Instead Senior Care, an international, non-medical, senior care company. The theme of the campaign is "Making gardening fun again for seniors." Home Instead offers guidance and a senior's gardening guide for those engaged in gardening activities.
Call Home Instead Senior Care at (866)375-4218 for a free copy of the gardening guide for seniors. For more information about their senior gardening program, contact Home Instead and click on the media room.
