Summer is here at last, and the Horticulture Therapy Program (HT) is once again in full swing. This year the HT Spring/Summer Program focuses on promoting gardening as a leisure activity that can be enjoyed by all clients, regardless of their level of functioning, while enhancing individualized skills. Clients have even more opportunities to participate in community outings this year, while developing practical knowledge of horticulture and how it applies to daily living. This season’s program focuses on the development of leisure skills through horticulture, encompassing art, music, food preparation, and increased community socialization through gardening.
Like so many other parents who have disabled adult children, I started to visit various agencies and came across Rimland. Although letting my daughter live somewhere else was maybe the hardest choice in my life, I knew it was the best decision for her. Within the first day she was with Rimland, she adjusted so well. Every time I visit her at her group home, she is smiling and happy. I can never thank Rimland enough for the kind loving care they provide.
