Music Therapy Workshop at Tupwood Gate

We recently had another visit from Lyn and Ian, who run ‘Music, Songs and More’ – a music therapy workshop. Our residents used instruments, pom poms and other items to express themselves. We also competed in a music quiz and spent time listening to composers, such as Tchaicovsky.

Spring Crafts for Tupwood Gate Residents

Residents have been taking part in some Spring crafts this month, creating bird feeders using lard, bird seed and coconut shells to hang in the garden. To bring the theme indoors, residents painted a mural for the conservatory, featuring tissue paper leaves, paper flowers and finishing off with some 3D bird houses.
