Gardening – An activity-based intervention towards recovery and wellness
Gardening is widely used in promoting recovery and wellness. At Royal Rehabilitation Hospital, this form of Occupational Therapy intervention is a versatile therapeutic medium that enhances our patient’s journey.
Different types of gardening can be graded and meet a wide range of patient needs. Evidence from our therapist has shown patients heal from Stroke, other neurological and trauma related conditions.
This form of therapy increases motivation to participate, provides enjoyment and creates a profound and intimate connection to the natural world.
At Royal Rehabilitation Hospital we provide acute and sub-acute inpatient and outpatient physical rehabilitation for people challenged with a wide range of disabilities caused by disease or injuries.
