Situation

To provide high quality, innovative, affordable and practical day services to adults with physical and/or sensory disabilities, whilst promoting independence and well-being within the local community for disabled people and their carers. The group activity sessions are organised to encourage mental dexterity, visual awareness, decision making, social interaction, enjoyment and physical and mental stimulation. This helps with memory, concentration and using language.

Solution

The art sessions promote creativity through working with, exploring and discovering a wide variety of mediums and materials. Art sessions bring enjoyment and a sense of fulfilment to see an idea being created on paper or as a model. The art projects can offer either short or long-term results that can aid memory and offer the opportunity for group members to share knowledge and skills with other members of the group.
