COVID-19 has been tough on all our residents with changes to daily schedules, changed visitation arrangements, and outings postponed. For one resident from Hardi Penrith Judith, this has been hard as she has had to miss her normal outings with the NDIS support worker. So the lifestyle team at Penrith helped harness her talent and passion for art and created Judith with a space to draw and paint her masterpieces.
After lunch everyday, Judith with the help of the lifestyle team set up her area with all her art supplies and she got to working on some amazing pieces of art, this small activity has helped Judith deal with her change in schedule and stopped her missing the outing with her NDIS support worker. The artwork that Judith was creating looked so good it didn’t seem right to not share it so Lifestyle member Donna, asked Judith if she could create a little display outside Judith’s room so the masterpieces could be on display for all to see and admire.
Judith is so ecstatic for her art to be on display and it gives her extra motivation to create some special pieces especially since all residents, visitors, and staff comment on how amazing it looks.
