ELMWOOD RESIDENTS ENJOY BEING CREATIVE

15 November 2016

Residents have been enjoying several painting sessions that have been taking place at Elmwood over the last few weeks. 

One of the sessions ‘Let’s be creative’ was designed to encourage the residents to use their fine motor skills. The residents spoke about their life experiences and their wonderful creations. They were very thankful for the opportunity to create something special they can hang in their rooms.

The residents were also delighted to join another creative activity, ‘Discovery Painting’, which gave them an opportunity to reminisce about their past life experiences.  One of the residents, Peter, was a footballer so he was given an image of a footballer, which sparked some great conversation.

“The sessions were very successful and allowed us to get a deeper understanding of our residents’ past,” - noted Angelin Selvanathan, Activity Carer. “The residents also enjoyed being creative”.
