This ancient form of meditative art is a great activity for elderly clients in assisted care facilities.

Colouring continues to be of great benefit in aged care. We have introduced our residents to watercolours and acrylic painting besides crayons. Our latest venture is:- We are recycling an old large Hot Water tank. Our art animator led our residents with acrylic paint on this tank. On completion we are placing it on a prominent site at the facility and invite some guests (the residents' relatives) for the inauguration. The residents already feel proud on their achievement!

We have been having great success with the adult colouring. Our consumers are finding it very relaxing when doing it at respite and a few have bought their own books to colour in at home.

We have been using these at our facilities, the residents find this relaxing and enjoyable.
I give the resident a Clipboard with the image to colour in and a container of pencils.
This is particularly good for those whom like to stay in there rooms and prefer to not interact with others.
