We are proud to have contributed to the creation of the living wall in the Aylmer Residential and Long-Term Care Centre (CHSLD Renaissance) in Gatineau, Québec.
Thanks to our contribution and that of the Gatineau Health Foundation, the residents, their families and staff of the CHLSD Renaissance can enjoy a magnificent living wall and and reap the proven benefits of such presence within the walls of the institution. Indeed, current research shows that nature has a positive impact on the physical and mental health of residents and patients, but also on caregivers. Thank you to our generous donors and to the Gatineau Health Foundation for having made this possible.
The CHSLD Renaissance is a Residential and Long-Term Care Center of the Outaouais Integrated Health and Social Services Centre (OIHSSC) for seniors with a severe loss of autonomy whose condition requires constant supervision and specialized care and for whom it has become impossible and unsafe to remain at home.
Living walls for health. 🍃🌱
"A recent experimental study conducted by Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) showed that air-flowing plant walls installed inside offices changed the microbiote affecting the health of employees' skin and enhanced immune system regulation. The effects could already be observed during one month."
