Memories of the past make for a great reminder for those with and without Alzheimer's. For my father-in-law, who does have dementia, the galvanized tub reminds him of hauling water to his own garden years ago, the wagonwheel is remembered fondly of years past leaning on the same tree, and the burgundy water pitcher was actually a lamp that has always been in his house. A garden isn't always just about flowers, but can also be a walk down memory lane.

Memories should never be forgotton. That is why I designed and planted the "Memory Garden" for my father-in-law, who has dementia. The items placed within a beautiful setting sparks great conversations and memories that may otherwise be lost forever.
