‘Reader’s Corner’ – Olive Gets Painting

Involving residents in normal, everyday tasks that they would have done in their younger years is a brilliant, easy way to provide stimulation, encourage physical movement and boost self-esteem.

When we saw these photos of Olive, a resident at Two Acres Care Home, ‘supervising the redecoration of The Lily Unit’ we knew we had to share them here for you all to see.
