Eskaton Foundation will hold a ribbon cutting and unveiling ceremony event on Friday, August 14 at 1 p.m. in celebration of the newly built Therapeutic and Healing Garden at the Eskaton Care Center Greenhaven (ECCG).
The Therapeutic and Healing Garden includes100% wheelchair-accessible walkways, a labyrinth, multiple shaded patios, a rehabilitation ambulation garden to help rehab patients get back on their feet, living garden walls, raised garden beds, multiple benches and various areas for family visits and recreational activities.
The garden will also include drought-friendly plants that create a sensory paradise for patients and residents. Eskaton Foundation’s Fun in the Sun Campaign raised over $300,000 to transform the grounds into a unique Therapeutic and Healing Garden!
“The opening of these community gardens is a unique and monumental occurrence as it is rare for a nursing home to invest in creating a life-enriching opportunity of this caliber for individuals who will live out their life in long-term care,” said Todd Murch, Eskaton’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am incredibly proud to have such a beautiful, reflective space in the Eskaton Care Center Greenhaven and look forward to the positive impact that the Therapeutic and Healing Garden will have on the lives of our residents, patients, families and staff members.”
Eskaton Care Center Greenhaven provides rehabilitation and nursing care to approximately 1,000 patients each year. For more information on Eskaton Foundation, please visit eskaton.org.
