Discovering Hidden Talent among Residents at Bella Villaggio
When dining rooms and social areas closed at Bella Villaggio, our residents opened their doors to our staff for meal delivery, and other socially distant activities. We discovered an amazing amount of talent living right here at Bella Villaggio.
Aside from being a fun way to spend time, creating art has significant benefits for seniors. No matter the medium, art is a powerful form of self-expression and a healthy outlet for emotions during turbulent times. Additional benefits of art therapy include,
- Increasing feelings of relaxation
- Providing a sense of control
- Reducing anxiety and depression
- An opportunity for sensory stimulation
- Increased self-esteem
- Increased communication
By visiting each of our resident’s apartments more regularly, we discovered that many of our residents are talented artists. At Bella Villaggio, we have several quilters, painters, jewelers, and poets. Our staff was inspired by their work and thankful for their encouragement and motivation to find healthy ways to reduce stress.
Thank you to our residents for showcasing your work! If you are interested in learning more about living better than ever, now is the time to call Bella Villaggio. Call us today for a consultation. We can’t wait to welcome you home!
