Our latest work as ‘alliance partners’ to Alzheimer’s Australia NSW on designing their Port Macquarie Dementia Friendly Garden was recently featured by Cultivate NSW as part of their winter issue on ‘Dementia Awareness’. The sensory garden will be used by people living with dementia, their carers and their families to promote physical, emotional and psychologial benefits through a range of tailored dementia sensitive experiences. Once the garden opens in August we will provide you with the full run down on the design thinking behind this one of a kind garden.
