The Therapeutic Garden offers a serene location where patients can relax and meditate in an outdoor setting. Physical rehabilitation activities can occur in the garden whenever the climate permits patients to be outdoors. Different landscaped surfaces create opportunities for patients to practice new skills in a beautiful setting. Occupational therapists may suggest watering and pruning activities to meet patient goals. Speech pathologists may suggest the garden for cognitive and communication treatments, while recreational therapists may use the garden to help patients increase strength and endurance, mobility, focus, and memory. The garden can also encourage use of adaptive strategies and development of new leisure interests.
