Growing Health case study: Growing Support Bristol

Growing Support works with older people and people with dementia, mostly living in residential care.

A Growing Support gardener is usually over 80, living with multiple long-term conditions, limited mobility and with complex care needs which create challenges to carrying out day-to-day activities independently. Their health conditions often include dementia, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, and the after effects of a stroke, poor eyesight or poor hearing. Many are wheel chair users and would struggle to go into the garden unaided.
