Arts & Crafts

Participating in group activities is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills. Our Activities Coordinator is passionate about creating 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 pottery.

Allowing residents to be creative has a variety of mental and physical benefits, and when combined with the social aspect that these group activities provide, residents are sure to have a good time and feel accomplished after participating in our Arts & Crafts workshops.

A Multitude of Benefits

Our staff strives to create 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 create 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.
