Garden Therapy will take place at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17, at the Oak Park Arms retirement community, 408 S. Oak Park Ave.
Sue Milovitch of the Oak Park River Forest Garden Club will guide and assist participants in making beautiful floral arrangements with plants, flowers and greens. The arrangements can be taken home.
Giving and receiving flowers has been shown to ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as people age.
The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.
The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, and reservations are required. For more information call 708-386-4040.
