Designed by Miria Harris, herself a stroke survivor, the garden has been shaped by her story and the stories of other survivors. The garden is designed as a peaceful, sensory space for recovery.
Colour, scent and the sound of water provide soft way-finding for those with visual or mobility impairments. Interconnected pathways through a contoured landscape acknowledge the difficult road to recovery with its ups and downs. Natural-built walls articulate spaces to rest and be with loved ones. A wildlife pond and stream add a soothing auditory dimension.
A bridge across the stream is a metaphor for the mental, physical and emotional connections that have to be rebuilt after a stroke. Undulating, accessible paths and a series of resting places invite respite from the world of hospitals and reconnection with the natural world.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
The Stroke Association exists to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. The charity believes everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke.
The garden will relocate to the Stroke Unit at Chapel Allerton Hospital in Leeds, where patients currently have no suitable access to outside space.
