Arts & Crafts

There’s no need to be concerned if you don’t happen to have a creative bone in your body. Anyone can participate in our arts and crafts classes for free and be as creative as they like. Whether you’re a seasoned craftsman or prefer to sit on the sidelines, you’re welcome to do whatever you feel. Our teams are ready to assist you every step of the way.

Let’s Get Creative

Encouraging our residents to use art and crafts to express themselves is a wonderful way to engage and entertain our residents and their families.

There’s something for everyone to take part in at our regular arts and crafts workshops, whether you’ve never picked up a paintbrush or you are an artist at heart – it’s all good fun! For our sessions, we usually have a theme and goal in mind, such as making lavender bags or baking cakes. We also make sure that our creative activities are suitable for individuals of all ages, so your children and grandchildren can join in.


At Springvale, We Offer a Variety of Facilities

All of our amenities were created with our lovely residents in mind. While staying with us at Springvale, we always want our residents to feel like they’ve discovered their new home-away-from-home, which is why we encourage them to pursue their passions and continue doing what they love. All of our activities and facilities at Springvale have been intended to be accessible to each and every one of our residents, and we’re proud to deliver high levels of social, physical, and psychological stimulation.

Let Your Imagination Run Wild

Knowing what kind of projects our residents like to take part in is essential to making sure they’re getting the very best level of care from our teams. Our arts & crafts activities often have a seasonal theme such as creating Christmas cards during the festive season, painting daffodils in spring, or playing halloween bingo to name a few. Whether we decide to do our arts and crafts outside in the Summer, or indoors in the Winter, Springvale is the perfect place to let your creativity run free.

Arts & Crafts FAQs 

You won’t be the first person to have a question about our arts and crafts sessions. We get a lot of questions about our arts and crafts activities over the years, so we decided to compile all of our frequently asked questions and answers in one place. Don’t worry if you can’t find your question. You can always contact us directly for an answer, and we’ll be happy to provide it.

The answer to this question shifts on a regular basis. It’s really up to you what you make. Of course, our Activity Coordinators will have some input into the type of creative task you’ll be working on, but the world is truly your oyster. So roll up your sleeves – there’s lots of fun to be had!

After you’ve finished creating your masterpiece, you can take it back to your room or even give it as a gift to someone you care about. Occasionally, an activity will entail residents to dismantle and construct something unique for the care home, which will be shown for all to see. However, if one of our team members admires your work, we may ask whether we can proudly display it throughout the house.

Our lead Activity Coordinators usually decide on the main theme and topic for our specialised arts and craft workshops. If our residents however have the creative impulse to do something different, this is something that can be addressed and implemented as and when.

Springvale will gladly supply its residents with the necessary tools and supplies to complete their work. However, if our residents want to incorporate something particular or niche in their designs, they’re more than welcome to use the tools they have.

Understanding Your Needs at Springvale Care Home

At Springvale, we work together to encourage our residents in every aspect of life, so that we can bring the best out of them. Encouraging our residents is a big step toward making them feel safe, happy, and confident while they’re with us. We ensure that our residents and their loved ones see Springvale as a place they can call home by building strong relationships with them and doing everything we can to make them feel like they’re part of the ever-growing Springvale family.

Caring for Our Residents

Being able to give our residents the attention they deserve is the best part of caring for them. If there’s one thing we enjoy doing more than anything else, it’s hearing our residents’ remarkable tales and discovering what makes them tick on the inside and out. High-quality care begins with our residents, and we do everything we can to ensure that it continues with them.
