Heritage Park Nursing Centre
To Heritage Park Nursing Center this morning to print using silicone “gelli plates”. Located at 2806 Real Street in Austin, Heritage Park is home to 180 – 200 people.
It is a private but State provided facility funded by Social Security and people will come here post acute – if unable to live independantly and unable to afford private care. It has a central hall with corridors running off and residents generally will be unwell with a wide range of health issues but especially memory loss and dementia. We made prints this morning but largely we were making the work for people and encouraging some low level participation.
