CELEBRATING THE ROLE OF ART IN CARE01-08-19
‘’Care Home Open Day is now in its 7th year.
This year’s theme was celebrating the role of “Arts in Care”.
It encourages homes to open their doors to celebrate a different theme each year, with a few key values at its heart – Friendship, Making Connections and Celebrating Older and Vulnerable People.
The creative arts play a key role in encouraging self-expression, sharing emotions and reminding everyone that many Residents have talents that come to the fore when given the right environment to flourish.’’ (Sylvie Silver, NAPA)
This year’s Care Home Open Day took place on Friday 28th June 2019.
In the morning Birchy Hill held an art competition in the Sensory Garden and in the conservatory. Residents were completing their art designs and families and friends were invited to join in. When all artwork is completed, it will be on display in Peggy’s Café.
