In August 2019 myself and Julie Garton gained funding from the General Nursing Council for Scotland, and we joined by Mandy Cowan from Alzheimer Scotland for a study tour to the Netherlands to visit Green Care Farms. Green Care Farms for people with dementia are small home-like settings with engagement with farming activities integral to the systems and processes of care delivery. Offered as an alternative to traditional long-term care models, research into Green Care farms have demonstrated the ability to provide a person-centred, meaningful and nurturing environment for people with dementia.
