Reminiscence. Intergenerational Bonding. Sensory Stimulation & Sunlight. Environment (R.I.S.E) Wall Mural

Ling Siew Han, Ong Qi Hui, Ooi Shu Xian, Tee Yan Ling and Teo Xinyuan from  class of 2019, Diploma in Nursing, came up with the concept of a mural featuring an old provision shop in Singapore. The aim was to invoke a sense of nostalgia for the residents, and at the same time liven up the outdoor backyard into an activity space. The innovative space was well-received as it stimulates and brings back memories for the residents.
