On 10 September, over 80 volunteers took part in this year’s Art for Seniors Project at The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home. The inter-generational group of volunteers painted the corridor of two residential areas in The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home with colourful wall murals and celebrated the September babies birthday (for both the Home’s senior residents and volunteers). A big and heartfelt THANK YOU to all the volunteers who took time to be with us for the Art for Seniors Project!!
About Art for Seniors Project
A charity initiative by Ageing Asia, the Art for Seniors Project aims to use art programmes to engage elderly in our local nursing homes.
Launched at the 3rd Ageing Asia Investment Forum in 2012, Ageing Asia was inspired by Dutch ageing-in-place specialist, Professor Dr Hans Becker, Chairman, Humanitas Foundation, The Netherlands, and his outstanding use of art to create conversation pieces in elderly apartment complexes operated by his organisation all over Rotterdam. Professor Dr Becker shared that the idea is all about creating liveliness and entertainment in the homes. This sparked Ageing Asia to come up with an idea to use art to improve the quality of life in our local senior homes, and hence the Art for Seniors project was borne.
Ageing Asia also hopes to attract greater support to grow this intergenerational bonding art project, and to encourage youths in Singapore to understand our elderly more.
