Arts & Crafts

Participating in group activities is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills. Our Activities Coordinators are passionate about developing new and engaging activities, such as our regular Arts & Crafts sessions. There are various craft opportunities for residents to enjoy, ranging from painting and colouring to flower arranging and baking.

Giving residents the space and opportunities to be creative has a variety of mental and physical benefits; when coupled with the social aspect that these group activities provide, residents are certain to have fun and receive multiple benefits from attending our Arts & Crafts sessions.

A Diverse Activities Programme

Our activities coordinator works to create an interesting and diverse activities programme where all residents can feel motivated and engaged. We believe that art therapy, in its many forms, promotes the well-being of the elderly. Group activities can also help residents, staff, family members, and the wider community form stronger bonds. Arts & 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.

Activities for All Abilities

Every activity available is designed to be accessible to all of our residents, regardless of their abilities. We encourage residents to participate in all activities in a safe and controlled manner. This allows them to try new things and gain new skills, which boosts self-confidence and allows them to live a more satisfying life. All programmes have been carefully planned to match the needs of our residents, with the purpose of engaging everyone.
