Arts & Crafts

Taking part in group activities is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills. Our Activities Coordinator is passionate about producing new and engaging activities, such as our regular Arts & Crafts sessions. There is an abundance of craft opportunities for residents to enjoy, ranging from painting and colouring to flower arranging and baking.

Giving residents the opportunity to be creative allows them to enjoy the variety of mental and physical benefits. In addition, when combined with the social aspect that these group activities present, residents are sure to have a good time and enjoy spending time with their fellow residents, staff and loved ones.

An Abundance of Benefits

Our Activities Coordinator is dedicated to creating an interesting and diverse activities programme where all residents can feel motivated and ready to take on each day. We think that art therapy, in its many forms, promotes the well-being of older persons. Group activities can also help residents, staff, loved ones and the broader community foster deep and long-lasting bonds. Arts and crafts classes are about more than just painting a picture; they provide a variety of benefits, and our staff has experienced firsthand how beneficial they are to our residents.
