Bellenden Artists in the House
Cumberland View Aged Care – Whalley Drive has a fantastic new program called Artists in the House. Every Wednesday morning, staff member Anne takes our Bellenden residents through a therapeutic art journey. Our Bellenden wing is dedicated specifically to dementia care.
Through this activity, residents can create artwork that connects them to certain memories. This allows them to express themselves on paper. These artworks allow us to see their individuality and creativity shine through.
Art Therapy provides fantastic benefits such as aiding in relaxation, anxiety and depression, improving social communications, increases creativity and cognition and improves sensory stimulation!
Our residents look forward to Wednesday mornings!
