Improved Well-being

We believe that art therapy, in its many forms, improves well-being for older people; our activities team strives to produce an engaging and diverse activities programme where all residents can feel motivated and ready to take on each day. Group activities can also be beneficial in building relationships between residents, staff, loved ones and the wider community. Arts & Crafts sessions go way beyond simply painting a picture, it offers a range of benefits and our staff have seen first-hand the positive effects it has had on our residents.
