Flower arrangement is known to be a great therapeutic activity, but for the elderly specifically, there are numerous psychological and physical benefits too.
- The repetitive action of arranging each branch of flowers allows for relaxation and mindfulness and helps to reduce stress.
- It also allows the elderly to explore their creativity and use their imagination as they create their beautiful arrangements.
- The gentle movement of using their hands and fingers encourages mobility for those who are less mobile, promotes fine motor skills and improved hand-eye coordination.
We really enjoyed this calming activity and hope you like the beautiful arrangements created by our residents!
