Residents and staff enjoyed a special art class

Residents and staff celebrated National Care Home Open Day with watercolours

Lifestyle Manager Daniel Worley and his staff welcomed artist and art tutor extraordinaire Gerald Porter to their care home on Friday 28th June so that he could spread a little of the joy of being creative.  Gerald runs a well attended weekly art club for Age UK Northamptonshire and is skilled in helping mature people rediscover artistic skills they may have forgotten they had!  

The watercolour session was run to suit the individual capabilities of everyone and Gerald and staff made sure no one was left out.  Local MP Andrew Lewer and Northamptonshire County Councillor Pinder Chauhan also called by to show their support for a national event that encourages friendship, making connections and celebrating older and vulnerable people.
