Authors: Obu, Philomena
Issue Date: 20-Jul-2010
Abstract: The research sought to find out response of the residents of Kumasi Cheshire Home (rehabilitation centre) who are discharged mental patients to art activities in textiles. The scope of the research was limited the art activities in textiles. To solve this problem, an in-depth interview with residents, the administrator, Chief Psychiatric Nurse and staff of the home were conducted. Participant and non-participant observation as well as experiments were made. The main findings of the research which have been expounded by photographs of selected works of residents show that their intensity of illness did not affect their creativity. The findings and recommendation made on these patients will serve as a useful source of information for the psychiatric hospitals, rehabilitation centers and occupational therapist in the country and the general public.
