Growing smiles at St Martha's Regional Hospital
The patio deck on the Geriatric Assessment and Rehabilitation/ DVA/Med Surg Unit at St Martha’s Regional Hospital in Antigonish was recently upgraded with a new deck. The new deck was made possible with support from the Commissionaires of Nova Scotia, as a contribution to the Veterans who reside on the Unit. The space is inviting and is enjoyed by patients, families and staff. To enhance the space, the planters are also a recent addition, donated as a memorial by the family of a long-serving nurse. Besides creating a visually appealing space, the planters are also used as a way to embrace horticultural therapy. Artist-in-residence, Rachel Power, and her group were happy to get their hands dirty filling the planters with annuals!
