Testimonials and Feedback
Evaluation by researchers at the Gerontology Department, Stirling University of the kits in use in a care home and a day care facility, found that:
“The creative opportunities provided by Creating Conversations: Gardening have the potential to increase confidence, reduce anxiety, affirm identities, support positive social connections and provide opportunities to engage in enjoyable and purposeful activities as evidenced through the observations.”
Dr Jane Robertson, Lecturer in Dementia Studies at University of Stirling
“The tablecloth is lovely and has sparked many memories which we have shared. Each session is set out in the user guide with clear, easy to follow suggestions on how to lead the activities. Our service users particularly enjoyed reminiscing about their own gardens and getting involved in planting and watching their flowers grow. We would happily recommend this product as an addition to any care home activity programme.”
