ARTISTIC residents at Heanton Nursing Home are working on a new summer mosaic which when completed will take pride of place in the bathrooms of the EMI care home.
The artwork is being created with shells from local beaches and is the latest in a series of arts and crafts projects residents have worked on with the help of the home's dedicated activities team.
A number of their collages have been selected for the 2008 and 2009 Dementia Calendars and are displayed around the home, which provides specialist care for those suffering from dementia, which includes a varied and stimulating activities and events programme.
"As many of our residents are unable to venture out to the beach our activities team brought the beach to them and the constant reminder will be there in the form of this wonderful mosaic," said home manager Liz Thompson.

The home at Heanton Punchardon, near Braunton, is planning an art exhibition later in the year, when some of the residents' art work will be on display.
