Judy Adams and PJ Koshi of Aegis Living at Callahan House garden with a resident.

Aegis Living at Callahan House in Shoreline, a senior care community dedicated to memory care, is taking innovative and ‘green’ steps to help provide a healing and enriching community for its residents.

Judy Adams, General Manager, partnered with Eldergrow, a new Seattle company, which offers mobile indoor gardens and therapeutic programming.  Adams, who is also a Registered Nurse, acknowledges the therapeutic value to gardening

“Our residents really benefit from the engagement, whether it’s the sensory stimulation that plants provide or the use of motor skills when residents garden.” 

Orla Concannon, Founder of Eldergrow, previously worked in the senior care field and developed the indoor garden and programming with the intention to bring nature directly to the footsteps of seniors.

“I want to bring the outdoors indoors and share what we often can take for granted.”
