Why Gardening is Great for Seniors

For seniors who have always had the desire to start their own garden, this may just be the time to do so. With gardening, come many benefits for the elderly. Gardening as a regular hobby can be therapeutic for mental and physical health as well. Research shows seniors who engage in gardening activities tend to have higher self-confidence and better hand strength than those who may not participate in this kind of physical activity. Because taking care of plants generally involves light physical work, gardening can serve to motivate the elderly to exercise more often. Maximizing their physical health through regular gardening, by continuously carrying water buckets and other gardening tools offers many benefits.
