Seniors Get Creative

Forget Me Knot will share ‘bundled wedding flowers’ with nursing homes and adult day centers for residents to enjoy flower arranging, providing physical and mental therapy. A flower arranging activity brings purpose and meaning to those tucked away in their rooms - it brings them out of their personal spaces and promotes conversations about gardening, kinds of flowers, and past experiences with flowers. It engages those lonely or depressed, into being creative and productive…and the feelings of fear, anxiety, loneliness and sadness, diminish, if just for a moment or two.
