The 21st September is Alzheimer’s Awareness Day so our residents will be individually making a forgetme-knot flower out of felt, paper or tissue or drawing one. Then all the flowers will be combined onto a heart-shaped board which will be displayed in reception.

National Art in Care Homes’ Day

To celebrate National Art in Care Homes’ Day, we will be making a collage of fabric flowers which the residents will make into a flower meadow to be displayed.
