Improved Quality of Life

We believe that art therapy, in its various forms, improves the quality of life for the elderly; our dedicated Activity Coordinator strives to produce an engaging and varied programme where all residents can feel motivated and are given the opportunity to flourish. Sharing activities can also be beneficial in building relationships between residents, staff, friends, family and the wider community. Arts & Crafts Sessions go way beyond simply colouring a picture, it presents a whole host of benefits and our staff have witnessed the psychological benefits Arts & Crafts can have.

It is extremely important to us that every activity available here at Haling Park Care Home can be enjoyed by all of our residents, including those living with low-level Dementia and those with physical limitations. We encourage residents to try new activities in a safe, controlled and regulated way, which will fill them with the confidence they need to continue living fulfilled and happy lives. All sessions are carefully designed specifically for our residents, with the goal of ensuring there is an activity for everyone.
