Publication of the garden therapy study DuWigata
Starting next year, IKK classic wants to "promote the introduction of garden therapy in inpatient facilities and the further training of nursing staff in garden therapy that this requires," said Martin Heck, head of the prevention department. "The approach of garden therapy convinces us, as it activates and strengthens the existing resources of those in need of care." The decision was made after ILAG's extensive long-term research was completed and a successful pilot study was conducted to train employees* in nursing homes to become garden therapy assistants. The DuWigata study has now been published under the title "Garden Therapy as Social Intervention".
