Sinds mid-March, Tuesday is 'art day' for the rehabilitation patients of ward E 232 and E 233. Every week, they collaborate on 2 large art creations that tell their story and that will be put on display for all patients, employees and visitors. The artists are partly adults with an acquired brain injury or celebral palsy, partly adults in rehabilitation for a spine injury, amputation of a limb, polytrauma, burns or a disorder of the peripheral nerve system.
Every rehabilitation patient works according his own physical and creative possibilities: in a modified manner, with or without aids. This makes this type of art therapy accessible for everyone. Psychologist Carine: “For many it is a whole new experience to make something creatively and to find that they can do it, despite their possible limitations in e.g. hand function. This gives them a positive and satisfied feeling.”
