We have been so privileged to of welcomed Drawling Life into our homes. Drawing life work with people with dementia. Judy Parkinson, the project director has a special interest in art and the memory. The project is linked to Jerwood Gallery in Hastings.
Over the passed year Judith and her fantastic team have voluntarily come into Coast Care Homes to work with our residents to produce some wonderful life drawings on a regular basis.
Drawing Life competed in 'The Peoples Project challenge 2018'. The community voted for a project they believe would have the most benefit to their community. The winner receives financial support from the National Lottery funding. We were thrilled to hear that Drawing Life won!
The Drawing Life team chose three local care homes to regularly visit free of charge over the next year. We are so fortunate and grateful that they chose one of our homes.
The engagement of our residents in this activity is quite remarkable. Our residents art work is on display throughout our homes.
