prototype, healthcare, elderly, Good Seed

Providing horticultural therapy for elderly with mild cognitive impairment through cross-sector collaboration



The venture aims to enhance the quality of life of the elderly and slow down the degrading of their cognitive functioning.  Golden-agers (aged 50+) will be engaged to serve the seniors who have mild cognitive impairment (MCI) through horticultural therapy (HT) involving a variety of therapeutic plant-based exercises.

Two core services will be offered – (1) ”MindfulGreen Ambassador” training programmes for equipping the golden-agers and corporate volunteers with knowledge about dementia and skills in HT, and (2) Golden-age registered horticultural therapists will be employed to partner with trained Ambassadors to offer community-based HT programmes for slowing down the degrading of cognitive functioning of the MCI elderly.
