Gardening is a therapeutic and enjoyable activity for people of all abilities. By incorporating adaptive tools and techniques, such as raised beds and ergonomic tools, individuals can enjoy the benefits of gardening regardless of physical limitations.

Art Therapy 

Art therapy provides a creative outlet for self-expression and emotional healing. Painting, drawing, and other art forms can help individuals explore their emotions, reduce stress, and boost self-esteem. The Epsom and Ewell Art Guild offers art therapy classes for people of all abilities.

Storytelling or Reminiscence Groups 

Joining storytelling or reminiscence groups offers a platform to share life experiences, memories, and wisdom. These groups provide a supportive and engaging environment for individuals to connect with others and foster a sense of community. The Epsom Adult Community Centre offers a storytelling group every second Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m.

Puzzle and Brain Games

Engaging in puzzles, crosswords, Sudoku, and other brain-stimulating games can help maintain cognitive abilities and mental sharpness. These activities provide a fun and challenging way to keep the mind active and engaged. There are a few puzzle and brain games clubs in Epsom, such as the one at the Epsom Library.
