Flowers convey affection, appreciation and caring to those who give and receive them. They can renew spirits and brighten recipients’ day and environment.
Studies have established a strong correlation between fresh flowers, greater emotional well-being and a more positive outlook among seniors.*

Picture this… the anticipation builds as residents eagerly await delivery of their flowers. What flowers will arrive this week? Perhaps some amazing roses from Ecuador, beautiful gerbera daisies from Canada, or magical peonies from Italy?
PETALZ is offered to community owners and managers as a unique, value-added amenity that will enhance the lives of your residents as well as increase the marketability of your communities to prospective families.
In addition to our vase-ready flowers, we can offer your community floral kits as an interactive crafts activity. These are boxes of flowers (e.g. roses, tulips, peonies, greens) that will allow your residents to design their own unique bouquets. In addition to the incredible sense of pride your residents will feel when they create their own masterpieces, this activity will encourage them to utilize their minds and hands in a fun and colorful way. These “designer” bouquets will become a spirited topic of conversation for residents and their families.
