My mother has recently been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's. She has always loved gardening (she's actually a master gardener), so I think I'm going to build her a little indoor garden with artificial grow lights, so that she can continue gardening (it's more difficult for her to garden outdoors these days). I've been growing indoors for years and I think this could be really good for her.

That's great that gardening is a good promotion of better thinking.
