Brooklyn get crafty for Halloween

Brooklyn House in Attleborough, residents have been getting into the spirit of Halloween this week during regular craft sessions.

Residents took a trip down memory lane making Pom Pom Pumpkins, a craft which many remembered from as early as childhood. Chris said, “Pom poms always remind me of me and my sister, we used to like making these for our bobble hats for the winter.”

It is great to see the residents getting their creative juices flowing and being active, the activities help engage the mind, stimulate brain cells, and provide interaction and communication with others in the home. Activities such as this help maintain eye and hand coordination and encourage stimulation of the brain that offer pleasure to those engaging in pleasant and enjoyable activities.

The residents will continue to be creative, preparing for Halloween which will see fun games, experimenting with food and fancy dress.

Brooklyn House provides specialist nursing care in a purpose built environment for up to 38 elderly people.
