At Beaumont Care Rothwell we have implemented an art programme under the guidance of our Art Therapist Wayne. We have witnessed the amazing benefits of this activity for our residents including increased concentration and creativity. Residents make choices with what they paint and the colours they use.
Cognitive skills are improved through making their own decisions with their painting and motor skills developed through the actions required to paint. The residents look forward to and enjoy their art and are very proud of their work as these photos show.
