The Bob and Dudie Kieckhefer Strolling Garden at The Margaret T. Morris Center is a nationally recognized example of a safe, therapeutic garden for people with memory loss. Through gifts and community support, this award-winning garden meets the sensory needs of our residents through a variety of unique features and areas.
In the spring, summer and fall this Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation is the hub of general activities and our specialized Horticultural Therapy program.
The garden at The Margaret T. Morris Center is a place for families inspiring renewed hope, peace of mind and special moments when visiting with loved ones. A few of our special features include:
The fully-secured main garden area features heirloom apple & plum trees, walking paths and sitting areas.
Our newest addition to the gardens is a small enclosed patio which can be independently accessed by residents freely from one of our resident neighborhoods.
Weather permitting, activity and resident assistants conduct daily walks with the residents, and a patio awaits those who just want to sit and enjoy Prescott’s fresh mountain air.
We are always in need of weekly gardening volunteers as well as individuals to help with specific projects. To receive more information on volunteering in the areas of HT programming, garden/indoor watering and/or greenhouse maintenance call Pam Catlin at 928-771-2335.
Pam Catlin, our Registered Horticultural Therapist is recognized in the Horticultural Therapy community for her years of experience in the field. Authoring chapters in two textbooks and being on faculty with the Horticultural Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado, Pam broadens the exposure of our Horticultural Therapy program. Individuals come from all over the nation to visit the garden because of its reputation as a model therapeutic garden.
Adult Care Services congratulates Horticulture Therapist Pam Catlin on the publication of her book titled The Growing Difference: Natural Success through Horticultural Based Programming. The book helps in reiterating the value of Horticultural Therapy in the care and treatment of individuals with cognitive or developmental disabilities. This is a great testimony not only for Pam, but for all of our HT programs at Adult Care Services.
