The “Toolkit Vitality Garden” is launched!

Going outside is not a luxury, but a necessity. Unfortunately, it seems that going outside is still not a normal part of daily nursing home practice.

With this (Dutch) toolkit you now know how to design a nursing home garden based on evidence-based practice. It is developed based on literature research, preliminary results of an intervention study and expertise of the research- and projectteam.

This research was carried out by the University Network for the Care sector South Holland (UNC-ZH) in collaboration with Pieter van Foreest, the Living Lab in Ageing and Long-Term Care (Academische Werkplaats Ouderenzorg Limburg) and Bureau W E I J D E Tuin-en Landschapsarchitecten.
