Arts & Crafts

Taking part in group activities is a perfect way to socialise and learn new skills. Our Activities Coordinator works hard to ensure there is something fresh and exciting for our residents to put their hand to, including regular Arts & Crafts sessions. From painting and drawing through to flower arranging there is an array of craft options for residents to enjoy.

Being creative has a plethora of fantastic mental and physical benefits for our residents; combined with the social aspect attending group sessions offers, residents are almost certain to have fun and receive multiple benefits from attending these sessions.

Psychological Healing

We believe that the therapy of art, in its various forms, improves the quality of life for the elderly, which is why we have dedicated Activity Coordinators who strive to produce an engaging and varied Activities Programme where all residents can flourish. Sharing art activities can also be beneficial in building relationships between residents, staff, friends, family and the wider community. Arts & Crafts Sessions go way beyond simply colouring a picture, it presents a whole host of benefits and our staff witness the psychological benefits this type of group activity can have.
