We are very fortunate to have 'Drawing Life' visit the homes regularly. They are a charitable organisation, specialising in working with people with dementia in the care setting. They bring the wonderful medium of life drawing to our residents and day care clients. We really appreciate their visits.
We also are visited regularly by Sarah from Creative Minds. Sarah brings her wonderful enthusiasm for art to our residents. We have a large wall mural at each home, it is updated as a project regularly. This month 'Spring' was the theme. After 'lockdown' was introduced, Sarah held a session remotely at Whitecliff, our residents loved it.
Through this period of 'isolation', being creative is more important than ever. Spending time being dexterous, using our senses and enjoying the art work from residents around the homes has been paramount during this difficult time.
