29 Jul A Garden Space Transformed
The Special Care Unit Garden Transformed
Sometimes called the ‘secret garden’, the outdoor area in Louis Brier’s Special Care Unit provides a space for 17 of our most vulnerable residents living with dementia. Spearheaded by former Master Gardener Lisa Ford who visits Louis Brier at least three times a week to be with her mother Laura, Special Care families provided plants and tended to the space. During the July long weekend, thanks to Lisa and Louis Brier’s care team including Carol, Nicole, Jennifer and Teresa, the garden has received a little more love.
Local realtor and new Louis Brier volunteer Ruthie Shugarman brought her mother, Jean Cooperberg, along with her love of gardening and passion for creating homey spaces to families and residents of the Special Care Unit. Thanks to Ruthie and Jean, our resident families and Louis Brier staff and families, the garden has been transformed into a true welcoming haven.
