UNDER the guidance of Care Coordinator Ewa Ruskowiak, Edensor residents Diane, Sue, Daphne, Shirley, Jean and Susan have been very busy preparing for February 14.
The fifty-bed nursing and dementia care home, in Clacton on Sea, run by the Diagrama Foundation supports vulnerable residents to live life to the full and art plays a huge part in life at Edensor. For Valentine’s Day, some of the residents have been enjoying creating hearts to decorate the communal areas.
Ewa Ruskowiak, Care Coordinator, at Edensor Care Home said:
“We encourage the residents to dress Edensor for occasions throughout the year and it is wonderful when they come together to decide what they want to make for the next project. Valentine’s Day is always very special and with the extra day in February this year the decorations may stay up a little longer in case any of our ladies take the opportunity to pop the question on the 29th!”
Ewa asked the crafters for their thoughts about the Valentine craft project:
Shirley said she wanted the hearts hung up nicely on the wall so that everybody could see their art.
Daphne wanted a photograph of her by the art wall to send to her family.
Sue said she could not wait until they decorated Edensor with all these hearts.
