Arts & Crafts

Alexander House is dedicated to ensuring residents live happy and fulfilled lives. Our wonderful team takes great pleasure in presenting residents with a wide range of activities and entertainment, including regular arts and crafts sessions that are considerately organised by our activities team.

Being creative brings a wealth of emotional and physical benefits; our activities programme is inclusive and accessible, ensuring there are activities that are suitable for everyone.

Inclusive & Inspiring

Creativity brings an abundance of mental, wellbeing and physical benefits. In our experience, those who regularly participate in arts & crafts sessions are more socially connected. Studies also suggest that partaking in a creative activity can improve hand-eye coordination, memory and fine motor abilities. Regular attendance to these sessions brings residents together in a safe and comfortable environment where they are given the opportunity to flourish and be inspired.

Bringing the Outdoors In

We often look at our surroundings for inspiration, after all, our surroundings and staff are what make our care home so special. Whether it’s creating flower wreaths using picks from our garden or making scented handmade soaps, there’s so much fun to be had. All of the activities held here at Alexander House place the resident at the heart and we welcome any suggestions so we can incorporate new creative activities going forward.
