Gardening Life Station
Life Stations were created specifically for residents diagnosed with Alzheimer's and dementia. Each station is carefully developed with help from the nation's leading memory care programs in an effort to provide therapy for wandering residents through productive engagement. Every Life Station is designed with a series and interactive accessories.
Life Stations are a unique tool utilized in Memory Care communities, meant to spark memories and create simple moments of joy for residents. They are designed to be interactive - encouraging residents to touch, feel, use and share the items that make up each life station.
As part of re-learning activities, "life skill stations" are areas that are set up with props to look like workshops and other settings that people might have spent time in during their lives. The environment serves as a visual reminder of past life events. In some cases, re-learning techniques have reduced medication usage.

Life Skill Stations encourage residents to remain active as they practice daily routines and life skills that were previously part of their everyday lives.
The goal of life skill stations is to create small vignettes that help dementia residents spark old memories and create activities that encourage interest, movement, and interaction.
Life Skill Stations recreate familiar situations from the past — like drawing, gardening, fishing, laundry or a hobby workbench. Residents become socially engaged in these familiar situations, which can sustain their memories, as well as provide them with cognitive exercises and physical movement.
