Arts & Crafts

If you’re feeling particularly creative during your stay with us, then we here at Amberley Care Home are proud to say that we offer exclusive art and crafts sessions for our residents and their guests. We actually offer a variety of creative events here at Amberley, all of which you can see in our Full Activities Programme

Participating in artistic pursuits is recognised to be both calming and a great way to meet new people. Because of the numerous physical and emotional benefits of arts and crafts, we provide a varied selection of developing crafting programs and encourage our residents to be creative.

Harness Your Inner Artist

Our residents get the opportunity to express themselves creatively, as well as laugh and converse with their neighbours and friends, during our arts and crafts sessions. We’ve discovered that, in addition to the social benefits of our sessions, our residents’ physical and mental well-being improves, and they feel a great sense of accomplishment when they finish their latest masterpiece.

Even those who aren’t as artistically inclined as the rest of the residents at Amberley have a fantastic time and learn something new because many of our events include an educational or learning benefit. Typically, our sessions will have a theme and goal in mind, such as crafting flower arrangements or greeting cards. We also make certain that our crafting activities are suitable for individuals of all ages, so you can involve your children and grandchildren in the fun.


Our Facilities at Amberley Care Home

We want all of our residents to live happy lives, so we encourage them to participate in a variety of activities, whether it’s something new they’d want to try or an interest they’d like to keep up with. At Amberley Care Home, all of our programmes are geared to benefit our residents in some way, whether it’s socially, psychologically, or physically, and we’re proud of that.

Creativity Waits For No One

When it comes to our arts & crafts programmes at Amberley Care Home, we try to draw inspiration from our residents and surroundings. We enjoy making the most of what we have available to us, whether it’s doing craft classes in the living rooms or painting on the lawn on a Sunday. Our residents will always have access to the resources they need to participate in the activities, but we may frequently uncover natural resources in the garden and other things about the house that can be used in our creations.
