Arts & Crafts

Participating in group activities is a great opportunity to meet new people and learn brand new skills. Our Activities Coordinators are passionate about coming up with new and engaging activities, such as our regular Arts & Crafts sessions here at Oakdene Care Home. 

There are various craft opportunities for residents to enjoy, ranging from painting and jar decorating to flower arranging and card making. Allowing our residents to be creative has a variety of mental and physical benefits; when combined with the social aspect that these group activities provide, residents are sure to have a good time and end the session feeling accomplished.

An Improved Sense of Self

Our activities team works tirelessly to create an interesting and dynamic activities programme where all of our amazing residents can feel empowered and ready to take on each day. We think that art therapy, in its many forms, promotes the well-being of elderly individuals. Group activities can also help residents, professional team members, family members, and the wider community form stronger bonds with one another. Arts & Crafts activities are about more than just painting a picture; they provide a variety of benefits, and our team has experienced firsthand how beneficial they are to our residents.

Enough Creativity to Go Around

Every activity given here at Oakdene Care Home is designed to be accessible to all of our residents, regardless of their abilities. We encourage residents to engage in all activities in a calm and controlled manner. This allows them to try new things and gain new capabilities, which boosts general self-confidence and allows them to live a more satisfying life while they stay with us. All programmes have been carefully planned to match the needs of our residents, with the purpose of satisfying everyone.

Our residents have access to a wide range of tools that may be required during a session, at no extra cost.

Residents have complete control over their work, and what they choose to do with them. They can put it on display in their room or give it as a present to someone they care about. Residents can also showcase their creations throughout the house for everyone to see.
