A COLOURFUL START TO THE NEW YEAR AT ELMWOOD

23 January 2017

Residents at Elmwood had a creative start to the new year, creating artwork and enjoying each other’s company during a drawing and colouring session. “These sessions are special to me as I like meeting people and enjoy a good conversation”, noted Eileen, a resident at Elmwood.   

“Drawing and colouring are two art activities that are loved by everybody here. We have ideas for more arts and crafts sessions in 2017 as they bring joy to our residents and always make them feel relaxed. It also provides them with the opportunity to share their experiences with others over a good old cup of tea and biscuits”, commented George Kalsi, Activities Co-ordinator.
