Art Therapy – Nazarene Aged Care
We are very excited to announce that Sovereign Funerals are funding a new community program through our charitable foundation, ‘Interseed.’
Every cent of profit (after expenses) from Sovereign Funerals goes toward supporting life changing projects in our local community and overseas. Like the new Art Therapy program for the residents suffering from debilitating dementia at Nazarene Aged Care in Rothwell.
Wayne, our fully qualified Diversional Therapist comments, “Art therapy is a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages.”
Engaging the creative side of their brains, painting is both relaxing and therapeutic for the residents and their enjoyment is evident. One particular client suffers from Parkinson ’s disease, shaking continuously. But, while he’s painting, his hand is still!
Carers have noticed a marked improvement in the overall health and wellbeing of all participants in the program. This is just one of several community based helping programs funded by SOVEREIGN Funerals.
SOVEREIGN prides itself in providing professional, caring and compassionate service to every family we serve. When you arrange a funeral with Sovereign Funerals, you are leaving a lasting memorial to you loved one, because you are helping us to ‘help the world they left behind.’
