An outdoor space primed for socializing:
The use of nonpharmaceutical methods to treat medical conditions has been on the rise for many years. The addition of an outdoor courtyard is a well-known and simple method to increase everyone’s overall wellbeing. There are many advantages to an outdoor courtyard, which include the following:
- An environment for gardening
- A dedicated space for outdoor walks
- A quiet and surreal place to relax
An outdoor courtyard provides many physical and mental advantages. Studies have shown that individuals with Alzheimer’s benefit greatly from having an outdoor courtyard. Medication use is generally lowered when outdoor space is provided for residents. This outdoor space leads to a lessened dependence on medication, which helps lead to a healthier life.
Interaction is a crucial attribute that increases when a courtyard is erected. The open space leads to more and more social situations. Residents are more likely to socialize because they are all in a place that they like. Going to the courtyard becomes a focal point in residents’ days as they look forward to being outside and interacting with others.
The advantages of an outdoor courtyard are clear. From its many physical advances to its myriad of mental benefits, a courtyard is ideal for any facility. The overall morale and well-being of residents is a fundamental objective at MediLodge of Richmond, and we hope to make our residents’ stay as enjoyable as possible.
