The LHAS Sensory Garden opened in the summer of 2012 and is located at NHS/AVS' original location, the Patricia Hillman Miller Campus (PHMC). The outdoor space provides the 63 residents of PHMC an innovative and interactive way to engage with and learn from their environment.

The garden features a WhisperGLIDE wheelchair swing, fountain, Polk Pavilion with built-in sound system, beautiful plants and trees, texturized pathways and more.

A special thanks to the following contributors who helped to make the LHAS Sensory Garden possible:
Ladies Hospital Aid Society – LHAS Sensory Garden
Polk Foundation – Polk Pavilion
AVS Foundation – Fence around garden and backyard
Estate of Seima Horvitz – Glider and fountain
Friends, Families, Consumers and Staff Members who purchased commemorative bricks to be placed in the LHAS Sensory Garden.

To secure a brick for the garden, please call 412-299-7777.
