How can gardening be a good activity for the elderly?

Gardening has many physical benefits. Activities like digging and sweeping a path can boost oxygen levels to help a person maintain their co-ordination, balance, and stamina. Gardens give people a place to relax and reminisce. Gardening is also a fantastic stress release as well as a sensory feast as we take in all the colours, textures and smells in the air. At Home Instead Norwich, we are all about enhancing mental health in our older community.
