Engagement

Create a Flower-Promise Garden: Different flowers may represent many different things, but our flowers show our commitment to fighting Alzheimer’s disease. Every flower has a story and the different colors of the Alzheimer’s Promise Garden Flowers show personal connections to the cause:

  • Blue symbolizes someone living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
  • Purple is for an individual who has lost someone from the disease.
  • Yellow represents someone who is currently supporting or caring for a person living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
  • Orange denotes a participant who supports the cause and a vision of a world without Alzheimer’s
  • What color is your flower? Use your creativity to create your own Promise Garden at your facility/community or even at home. Create + design your own flowers, engage residents/patients to create their own, and even have your community/facility staff participate. Make this a community/facility event, perhaps tie in with your fundraising efforts, and maybe even showcase in a common area for many to view! We want to see your Promise Gardens filled with all colors of flowers. Send us pictures to clinicalstrategies@healthpro-heritage.com so we can share them on social media! Winners will be chosen- see details below.

Ageless Abilities Engagement Boxes: Uniquely-designed resource kits that contain a task or “occupation” that offers a purposeful + meaningful activity that serves to engage + stimulate residents/patients. Engagement Boxes are easily accessible so caregivers can quickly facilitate.
