Seneca Meadows Supports Programs at Huntington
Local business Seneca Meadows, Inc. recently made a generous contribution to support a therapeutic garden and aroma therapy project to benefit the residents at Huntington Living Center in Waterloo.

The project will entail adding raised, mobile gardens that are wheelchair accessible for indoor and outdoor use. Residents will plant natural herbs, vegetables and flowers in the gardens. The gardens will be moved from unit to unit at the Huntington to allow those with lifelong interest in gardening to enjoy this activity. Plans also call for the creation of meditational gardens and paths in the current outdoor garden area.

The aroma therapy project incorporates essential oils into daily care routine and activities for the residents. Staff will be trained on the use of the oils for appetite stimulation, behavioral modification, hand massage and generally lifting the spirits of residents. Additionally, the project will enhance the therapeutic small groups and soft sensory massage already in place at Huntington.

“I would like to thank Finger Lakes Health and the team at Huntington Living Center for bringing this insightful program to our community,” said Mark Benjamin, Community Relations director for Seneca Meadows. “Seneca Meadows is pleased to partner with Finger Lakes Health to make it possible. As the gardens are designed and built, the plan is to integrate native species also found locally at the Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve in Seneca Falls,” Benjamin added.

“We have been interested in bringing our beautiful outdoor gardens inside to our residents who are unable to enjoy them outside and to extend the garden season as well,” said Debbie Lockett, assistant administrator and director of Activities at Huntington Living Center. “We also are excited about expanding our therapeutic small groups and soft sensory massage programs with the aroma therapy project.”
