On January 22, there was held the first meeting of the “Art Therapy” project by the charitable foundation ” Hesed Shaarey Zion ” in the context of the “Feel Life” project of the “League of Jewish Volunteering” (the project is aimed at helping wards with persistent age-related decrease in cognitive functions).
The start of the project is related due to the fact that we have had to work with elderly patients with dementia. At the first meeting, our volunteers with older people were occupied with quilling. They created together colorful paintings of paper. Participants has got their own beautiful flowers. Of course, the meeting was not limited by one application, but it turned into a lot of interesting discussions and stories. Wards were happy to get acquainted with the activists of “Lion”.
