Nazareth: Accessible Garden for Senior Center

Project Description

As people age, their psychology, physical strength, and behavioral patterns change, and they may become quite unstable. Caring for the elderly, sick, and poor cannot be understated. The Daughters of Charity in Nazareth provide this service for seniors. They serve both men and women who are all in wheelchairs, have some form of dementia, and many who are fed with gastro feeding tubes. They accept people from any religious group and have waiting lists. The goal is to provide proper care in a hygienic environment and create a “Little Corner of Paradise” where residents can be outdoors and enjoy a beautiful accessible garden versus being stuck indoors. The outdoor space will provide greater joy and quality of life for the seniors and hopefully encourage the families to visit them more frequently.
