Show­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion for artist’s work

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

GUNTHER Vil­lage Fa­cil­ity Man­ager Bruce Bryan pre­sented Gayn­dah artist Su­sanne Capewell with an en­graved glass vase as thanks for paint­ing a new mu­ral to help de­men­tia pa­tients.

“It’s great to see this,” Mr Bryan said.

“It’s an idea we had read about, if peo­ple with de­men­tia don’t re­alise it is a door they won’t try and get out.

“It’s re­ally had an im­pact in that you no longer hear the door rat­tling all the time, the pa­tients would get ag­i­tated but now they don’t even see it as a door but as the barn.”

Mrs Capewell hap­pily vol­un­teered her time to paint the mu­ral to help stop pa­tients from try­ing to leave un­su­per­vised .

“I have re­ally en­joyed it,” Mrs Capewell said.

“I’ve got to know all the res­i­dents which has been re­ally good for me too.

“If we can come up with some more ideas down the track I’ll be happy to help again.”

Mr Bryan said the mu­ral came out bet­ter than he could have hoped.

“We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate what Sue has done for us,” Mr Bryan said.

“It lifts the vibe which is great, this wing is al­ways busy and on the go.”
