Canterbury Care Home Residents get Creative with Music

Feeling positive and looking forward to warmer days, residents of Connors House Residential Care Home in Canterbury decided to spent a morning embracing their creative sides.

With everything looking up for us all, residents of the Craddock Road residential care home combined two of their favourite activities this week, music and crafting.

With the help of staff, they spent the morning crafting their very own musical instruments and decorating them with various coloured string and felt – they even made a guitar.

After they’d perfected their instruments, they put them to the test and spent the rest of the morning making music, they were very impressed with how well they worked.

Christine Devlin, Home Manager of Connors House said: “Our residents really enjoy their creative activities and both crafting and music are so beneficial for older people, particularly those living with dementia, so combining the two seemed like a great idea!”

Creative activities are proven to have a positive impact on older people, encouraging social interaction and gentle exercise, as well as enhancing mood and alleviating stress and anxiety.
