The young adults cared for in our small-group homes “Hope” and “Love” joined art therapists in creating a fairytale in hues of purple on the ground-floor walls of the two buildings.
Getting the youngsters actively involved in the re-decoration process was expected to be a great opportunity for fun but it was fascinating to recognize their levels of concentration and engagement. The common room, the games room, corridors, stairwells and dining areas are completely transformed. The work is astonishing.
Many of those involved can’t verbally express themselves but their pride in their achievement is obvious to all who visit the houses.
The colors weren’t randomly chosen. Violet with hints of yellow promotes relaxation and calmness. Our specialists know this. In combination with aromatherapy and music they are providing an ambience especially designed for the young residents.
