Our fifth art exhibition took place at Culliford House, in October, and featured the work of the Connections Project, an art group made up of the care home’s residents.
The exhibition included paintings, drawings and prints made by the residents and is the fifth exhibition the group has held since its formation along with a bit of sparkle and dance.
Bridget Townsend, an artist and co-ordinator of the Connection Project, said the art group has helped the residents connect with the community.
June, a resident who is involved with the group, said it is very popular with the care homes’ residents.
She added: “It is very good. I am just getting into it, everyone loves it. I got drawn into it, but I do a bit of everything.”
Culliford House prides itself on keeping residents busy with hobbies and other activities. Jeanette A’Court, quality manager at Culliford House, said: “We have been working with Bridget for four years. We have wanted to connect with the community so that the care home can feel like they are part of it. Every year we go forward and when people come into care we make sure we cater to their hobbies and anything they want to try. We say life is for living and living well.”
We raised £85 in the raffle- half of which will go to the ‘Dignity in Care Action Campaign’ and half will go towards the new activities at Culliford House. Thanks to all who came. It was smashing and such a lovely event for the community and residents.
Catch up over a cuppa, enjoy some gorgeous treats and help us raise some money at Culliford on
