Odyssey residents help paint wall mural to inspire joy and positivity

22 April, 2022

Odyssey residents recently took up brushes and unleashed their inner Picasso and helped paint a wall mural along with local artist Mari Bray.

Mari used her signature bright and bold painting style to decorate one of Odyssey’s walls and the community were very excited to get involved in creating something incredibly beautiful that helps inspire joy and creativity.

It was excellent to see Mari’s mural come to life and it’s something that residents, guests and team members will be able to enjoy for years to come.

Numerous scientific studies show that enriching people’s everyday environment using colour and light can have several psychological and cognitive benefits, especially for the elderly.

It’s incredibly important that our seniors loved ones feel valued and to provide a sense of purpose and we’re always looking to increase those opportunities at Odyssey, this mural is just one of the many ways we achieve that.

Mari aims to paint 10 colourful walls at hospitals, schools, universities and Odyssey is just the beginning!
