Trinity Homecare’s Arts and Crafts Challenge - Supporting the NHS and Improving Wellbeing
31 Jul, 2020
As we approach International friendship day on the 30th of July, Trinity Homecare wants to share with you how they are tackling loneliness by offering companionship with their Arts and Crafts challenge.
Trinity’s Arts and Crafts challenge was set up during the COVID-19 lockdown and will be continuing throughout summer. The aim of the challenge is to get as many Live-in Carers and Service Users involved in creating works of art, in order to improve their mental wellbeing.
Supporting Live-in Carers and Service Users
At Trinity Homecare, they understand how challenging lockdown has been – particularly for more vulnerable people who haven’t been able to get about and do the things they usually would. Not seeing family or friends or doing the little things like visiting the local supermarket can have a huge impact on a person’s mental wellbeing.
Whilst things are slowly going back to some form of normality, the Arts and Crafts Challenge is already having a very positive impact. Art is a fantastic way for people to express themselves and is proven to reduce anxiety and stress. It is also an opportunity for Live-in Carers and Service Users to bond further, during this difficult time.
Supporting our NHS heroes
The challenge aims to support our NHS heroes who are at the forefront of the pandemic. At Trinity Homecare, they have a fantastic working relationship with the NHS and local CCGs and to show their gratitude, Trinity Homecare are donating money to NHS Charities Together. Some of the artwork will also be donated to the local GP practices and hospitals to brighten up their working spaces.
