Beautiful Artwork from Totara Club Members

Totara club is a dementia day stay which is a part of Equip, Mental Health.

Men and women living with dementia can come to the club and enjoy each other’s company for the day. We do many varying activities including art. Recently, the members that came on a Tuesday completed this large painting using bok choy to stamp out the flower shapes.

This painting is now displayed in our head office. Due to our donations, we were able to buy new paints and canvas' to start a project with a group that come on a different day.
