Horticultural Therapy & Seeds for Seniors
Horticultural Therapy offers many physical benefits such as reaching, standing, balancing, or increasing sensory stimulation, as well as a wealth of cognitive and emotional benefits, especially for older adults. Seeds for Seniors within our Horticultural Therapy program promotes the incorporation of gardening activities throughout the day. A.G. Rhodes is one of very few nursing organizations of our kind to offer this type of physical therapy for seniors.
Music Therapy & Songs for Seniors
Music therapy can address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals. In addition to the clinical benefits, music therapy sessions are fun, motivating and light-hearted, while encompassing the personal musical preferences of the patients. Only a handful of nursing home providers offers this unique program. Additionally, our Songs for Seniors program within Music Therapy promotes the use of personalized music.
