Enjoying Art & Crafts at Village Glen Aged Care Residences

aged care homes arts and crafts

Aged care homes typically organise many activities and have a busy lifestyle calendar for residents to indulge in. Here at Village Glen we offer several arts and crafts classes for you to try your hand at. Indulging in art and craft has several benefits for our mental health. Art is a great avenue to pursue for improving cognitive health. Painting for instance is known to be extremely therapeutic and to large extent relieves stress.

Arts and crafts activities at Village Glen

Here at Village Glen, we offer an extensive variety of arts and crafts classes for our residents to enjoy and bring out their creative side. Some of the art-based classes that residents can take part in are arts and crafts sessions, mosaic making, traditional painting, painting by numbers, flower arranging, poetry and singalongs. Whether they prefer working with beads, linen, paper or woodcraft, they sure will find something that suits their tastes.

They can also try their hand at knitting or crocheting. Needlecrafts are popular activities for the elderly, as they require simple tools and can be easily attended to by relaxing on a couch or in the patio. Needlecraft projects make for pretty gifts too, which can be given to grandkids and friends!

Our residents can also create a scrapbook, which is a great way to preserve their memories. They can also enjoy reminiscing whilst going through old photos and memorabilia for the project.

If they wish to paint, we have classes that are perfect for them. Painting can relieve stress and give that feeling of satisfaction as they create something colourful out of a blank piece of canvas or paper. This gives them the freedom to imagine and paint what they desire.
