Eastgate Care celebrated National Day of Arts in Care Homes by marking the transition from summer to autumn with homemade autumn wreaths.

September the 24th marked the very special day of creativity which was based on the theme of Creative Communities encouraging care settings to come together to create, talk, and just be socially creative in whatever way they see fit. 

Care home residents started the creative activity by foraging nature’s treats from the home’s tree lined grounds. Selecting brightly coloured leaves, berries, conkers and twigs, residents used these to design and create autumnal wreaths.

Naomi Allsop activity coordinator at Canal View Care Home says: “We have embraced the National Day of Arts in Care Homes to really appreciate everything autumn has to offer. Marking the transition from summer to autumn we now have a really nice reminder of creating something beautiful together from our own garden.”
