Colouring – Having Fun with Benefits
Colouring-in has long been considered a therapeutic activity suitable for the young and old. Colouring evokes feelings of peace, enjoyment and satisfaction. We’ve started incorporating this activity into our programs for residents. Some of the noted benefits of coloring for seniors are; mood improvement, stress releif, reduces agitation, promotes socialization and reminiscing, provides an outlet for self-expression, helps to maintain motor function, improves hand-eye coordination, improves dexterity (grip control), encourages cooperation, promotes mindfulness (full attention & concentration), and provides a sense of accomplishment. Below are a few pictures taken of our residents creating something beautiful.
