Artwork at Belmont House

Belmont House in Sutton, has a lovely reception area for residents and families to mingle.

The new Home Manager Carol Marsh thought it would be a lovely idea for residents that enjoy art and painting to have an area to show off their work. As a result Carol asked resident Rosemary if she would like to paint a piece of artwork to place in the reception area.

In the photo Carol stands proudly showing the art work of resident of Rosemary, ‘It has made a colourful addition to our reception area, it tones in beautifully with the colours in this area’ says Carol. Rosie has called it ‘The Here and now’.

We plan to set up a place where residents like Rosie can display their art work. It is our residents home first and foremost and we want to make sure they make it their home.

Creative activities, such as writing, painting and knitting, encourage a sense of competence, purpose, and growth—all of which contribute to aging well. A sense of purpose is significant for seniors, especially if they spent the majority of their younger years defined by a career or by raising children and running a household. Once those responsibilities are lifted, the elderly can sometimes develop an uncertainty about their purpose later in life. This can affect health and overall well being, helping to improve problem-solving skills and satisfaction. Also, when the elderly are able to share their handmade gifts with friends and family, such as displaying them for everyone to see, they develop a sense of pride in what they have created.

These types of activities help alleviate boredom and keep the residents minds busy, and may even help prevent feelings of depression. Furthermore, arts and crafts help with hand-eye coordination, cognitive abilities, and concentration.

Belmont House provides specialist residential, nursing and dementia care in a purpose built environment.
