Arts & Crafts

Partaking in group activities is the perfect way to learn new skills and socialise. Our Activities Coordinators work hard to ensure there is something enticing for our residents to put their hand to, including Arts & Crafts sessions. From painting and drawing through to flower arranging there is always an array of craft options for residents to enjoy.

Being creative has a plethora of mental and physical benefits for residents; combined with the social aspect attending group sessions offers, residents can make the most of the multiple benefits attending these sessions can have.

Psychological Benefits

We believe that the therapy of art, in its various forms, can improve the quality of life for the elderly. Our Activity Coordinators strive to produce an engaging and varied Activities Programme where all residents can participate and flourish. Sharing arts and crafts activities can also be beneficial in building relationships between residents, staff, friends, family and the wider community. Our Arts & Crafts sessions present a whole host of benefits and our staff witness the psychological benefits this type of group activity can have.
