Wilmington senior living facility Rockland Place opened its Sensory Garden last month, designed to therapeutically engage residents through the interactive spark of all five senses: Sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.
Brightly-colored pots provide a focal memory point, with native plants, bright blooms and herbs and edible plants activating smell, touch and taste sensors.
Central to the garden is a natural stone fountain featuring the sound of water cascading down to a pebble base. Meandering pathways of native rocks lead to interspersed seating areas, providing a beautiful, calming space for reflection and community sharing.
