In September, Housing for Women’s Older Residents’ Officer, Nadine, ran a series of therapeutic art workshops and a theatre trip for older residents.
The sessions, which attracted a total of 10 attendees, were held at Hilary Daniels House and Glenwood. Residents enjoyed tea, coffee and light refreshments alongside painting, craft activities, mindfulness colouring, music and bingo. The events were a wonderful opportunity for residents to get to know their neighbours and enjoy the therapeutic and relaxing benefits of painting.
Later in the month, Nadine accompanied a group of 5 older residents from Thrale Almshouses to the St. Martin’s Theatre to see a performance of Agatha Christie’s Mousetrap.
Nadine Hughes, Housing for Women’s Older Residents’ Officer, said: “It was a fantastic evening all round and everyone had a great time.
“Events like these are a great opportunity to bring people together, help residents build new friendships and celebrate older people in the community.
“We received positive feedback from residents who attended, and we look forward to organising similar activities for residents again in the future.”
