Nature's Remedy.

Nature has been proven to have profound effects on one’s mental and physical health. Unfortunately, due to various risks, vulnerable seniors living in residences or nursing homes have very limited access to nature and the outdoors. This means that seniors are lacking access to numerous health benefits that could significantly improve their health and quality of life. 

Did you know?

Benefits associated with connecting with nature include:

  • Energy and immunity improvement
  • Helping with seasonal affective disorder (including anxiety, exhaustion and sadness)
  • Reducing stress
  • Improving sleep
  • Boosting self-esteem
  • Improving focus and creativity

Considering this, the overall quality of care and life for many seniors in Calgary could improve from connecting them with nature.

Although not quite as effective as getting outside, bringing the outdoors indoors provides comparable benefits and avoids the risks of physically getting outdoors.

How can one bring the outdoors indoors?

Increasing natural light, adding plants, art and decor into a room, as well as emitting nature based scents and sounds have been said to be effective.

Fundraising Efforts:

Our goal is to bring the outdoors into seniors homes to connect them with the benefits nature has to offer.

Proceeds and donations from this event will be providing plants, art, décor and essential oil diffusers to various seniors homes and residences in Calgary.
