Equal Art Session at West Farm

Our residents at West Farm  were treated to a lovely and engaging art session delivered by Equal Arts, a local creative charity supporting older people and those living with dementia. The session aimed to stimulate creativity and foster a sense of community among the residents. The event was a huge success, with attendees of all abilities participating enthusiastically in various art activities.

The session included a variety of artistic projects, from collaging with colourful materials to painting and drawing. The residents really loved and demonstrated some amazing creativity and enthusiasm, resulting in a delightful range of artwork that brought smiles and laughter to everyone involved.

One resident said, “I had such a wonderful time. It was so nice to try something new and creative.” The hands-on activities not only provided an outlet for artistic expression but also encouraged social interaction and mental stimulation, proving to be highly beneficial for the residents’ wellbeing.

Zahra Karimi, our manager at West Farm, said“We are incredibly grateful to Equal Arts for bringing this wonderful experience to our residents. It’s heartwarming to see them so engaged and happy. These activities are essential for their mental and emotional health and we look forward to more such sessions in the future.”
