These Hands Art Project at Van Mall

At Van Mall senior living in Vancouver, WA, we value the life history of each resident, getting to know their life story on an individual level and then using that knowledge to design activities and events that are interesting and engaging. For example, our residents recently participated in a “These Hands” project for a meaningful Mother’s Day and Father’s Day work of art.

“These Hands” Project at Van Mall

We know that our residents are what makes Van Mall senior living so special. They are engaging, interesting, and FUN. To celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, our residents worked on a “These Hands” project. The project included art taken from photos of residents’ hands and answers to questions.

“Thank you to our Destiny, our Programs Supervisor for such a creative and thoughtful gift.” Marge Yinger, Van Mall resident

The answers to the questions were compiled to the following facts about ‘these hands’:

These hands have loved for over 749 years.
These hands have raised over 54 children.
These hands have worked as bookkeepers, truck drivers, secretaries, homemakers, teachers, farmers, preachers, mechanics, and more.
These hands have fun playing Bingo, golfing, gardening, reading, playing beanbag baseball, crafting, listening to books, being social, playing games, and loving love.
These hands are valued, important, and loved.


Residents received their photos during a special meal and enjoyed sharing their art with friends at their tables. At Van Mall, we are always looking for ways to show our residents how loved they truly are.
