Arts & Crafts

We always have something fresh, engaging and exciting on with our activities programme, from sewing and painting, to photography and drawing. We recognise the many advantages of having an active and creative lifestyle for our residents, which is why arts and crafts are always on the calendar.

Joining in on artistic activities has been known to relax our residents as well as encourage them to meet new people. This is because of the many mental and physical benefits crafting has; it encourages our residents to get imaginative.

Residents of all types are encouraged to join in and be as creative as possible and our team are always on hand to help them at every lesson.

Arts & Crafts Suited to All

Caraway House Care Home’s arts & crafts activities are an excellent way to bring residents together from all walks of life. When residents participate in arts & crafts it gives a lot of our residents the confidence to get to know their peers and therefore make friends with people they might not normally have had the chance to connect with otherwise. Whether it’s making homemade Play-Doh, baking biscuits and other goodies or painting by numbers, there is always something fun for our residents to get involved in.

Additionally, joining in with arts & crafts has been proven to improve the symptoms of depression, anxiety, loneliness and even dementia. These activities help with mindfulness, keeping residents present, helping with a depressive state and relaxing residents. Arts & crafts, regardless of the creation, has many long term impacts, especially on someones wellbeing, making it an inclusive activity which can be enjoyed by all.

Stimulating Classes

We always look to our residents and pleasant surroundings for inspiration when it comes to arts & crafts. All classes are created with our wonderful residents in mind with an end goal to motivate and inspire everyone who takes part.
