With many of our older adult clients choosing to stay at home or being told to stay in place, we are seeing more people return to, pick up or become increasingly interested in gardening!

Gardening is the second most-reported leisure time physical activity for older adults (behind walking). 

In today's episode, Christina goes through the physical and mental health benefits of gardening, what we can expect as clinicians when encouraging our clients to continue gardening and how we can leverage this hobby to optimize our results in our course of care. 

Enjoy and stay safe everyone!
