Arts & Crafts

At Harrier Grange Care Home we are committed to ensuring our residents live a fulfilled and happy life. We proudly offer a whole host of activities and entertainment that our residents can enjoy, including our wonderful and engaging Arts & Crafts sessions.

Being creative has a plethora of mental and physical benefits for residents; whatever residents end up creating, they’ll almost certainly have fun while doing it.

Ignite Your Creativity

Despite the topic of a particular Arts & Crafts session, we strongly encourage all residents to engage and actively participate in as many of these sessions as possible. Experience has taught us that older adults who participate in regular Arts & Crafts activities feel happier and more socially connected; residents are able to challenge their hand-eye coordination, memory and motor skills, and build camaraderie as they join others in learning something new. From improving cognition and memory though to feeling relaxed and in control, there are an abundance of reasons as to why we believe all residents should ignite their creativity and enjoy all the benefits that come along with it.
