Aegis of Shoreline, a senior care community that offers assisted living for seniors with light- to high-level care needs, surprised their residents with a holiday gift of an Eldergrow garden.

John Young, General Manager, partnered with Eldergrow, a new Seattle company, which offers mobile indoor gardens and therapeutic horticulture programming. Young presented the gift to residents for the holidays,

“I wanted to get a meaningful gift for our residents that would provide joy, as well as wellness benefits. Many of our residents garden and when I saw how the garden would be used during interactive sessions, I knew it would be a special gift.”

Orla Concannon, Founder of Eldergrow, developed the mobile, indoor garden and therapeutic programming for elders so that they could commune with nature year-round.

“Eldergrow’s indoor gardening provides sensory stimulation, improves motor skills, and a new sense of purpose as residents nurture their garden.”
