For many of us, getting outdoors has been a saviour through the pandemic. This hasn’t been, and will continue to be, unfeasible for many seniors in assisted living. Our goal is to bring a touch of nature into their homes.
Proceeds and donations from this event will be providing plants, art, décor and essential oil diffusers to Silvera seniors homes, in Calgary.
Nature has been proven to have profound effects on one’s mental and physical health. Unfortunately, due to various risks, seniors residing in assisted living have limited opportunities to get outside and in nature.
