The Flower Effect
In our aging population, many are saddened by memory impairment and isolated from activities they once enjoyed. Studies show that fresh flowers calm anxiety, boost memory and ease depression. The Flower Effect brings fresh flowers and provides a live floral design demonstration. A gift of a wrapped flower is given to each participant to enjoy at home and remember the fun and friendship they experienced that day.
Our Mission is to bring fun and friendship with fresh flowers to the Senior Citizens in our community; it is our way of giving back.
How does it work? We travel to Senior Citizen day care centers, assisted living homes, and other Senior facilities to conduct a 45 min to 1 hour long floral design demonstration. Engaging with Seniors, and showing them up close, various flowers and techniques used to create beautiful designs. Afterwards, a single wrapped flower is passed out to each participant. The average amount of participants is 25.
What does it cost? It is free for the Seniors and the hosting facility. However, the supplies and flowers have an average
costof $100-150 per demonstration.
How do I get involved? There are 3 ways for you to get involved, and give back to our elders. Please contact us for more information!
