DESCRIPTION:

This day centre offers specially adapted treatment for people dealing with Alzheimers’ or similar syndromes. Designed to promote autonomy and thus enabling them to continue living independently, it also offers respite for their carers.

Based on alternative social and medical care models, the patients’ workshops are organised around therapeutic gardens which are displayed thematically. There is a meeting garden with benches, a fragrance garden with aromatic herbs and a vegetable garden, all designed to stimulate the senses and encourage participation and communication.
