Pictures of Joy is a new project to put a smile on the face of care home residents, particularly those with dementia.
We are creating lovely laminated pictures, some with a line of a poem on, others just the picture, for care home residents to enjoy and to spark conversation. The pictures can be wiped clean between each resident, to stop germs spreading. Activity co-ordinators at the care homes we have trialled them have said they have proved popular with residents. Below are some of the pictures we are using:
If you'd like to get involved, by either submitting pictures for us to laminate, or if you're a care home who would like some laminated pictures for your residents, do email Wendy, via our contact page.
We're looking for a volunteer to help us with this project. if you've got a couple of hours to spare each week and you want to put a smile on the face of care home residents do get in touch. Click below for a role description
