Arts 4 DementiaJanuary 11 2016
Arts 4 Dementia helps develop activities at arts venues to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia and their carers.
We liaise with arts organisation education departments, memory services care teams and other agencies including the Alzheimer’s Society, Age UK, Dementia Pathfinders, memory and care services, to help set up, facilitate and creative projects at arts venues, for people living with dementia in the community and companions.
A key feature of our work is to encourage the spread of this practice, and to signpost activities by art form, so that those who need it will be able to find artistic stimulation in their chosen art form close to where they live.
Arts 4 Dementia believes that people with dementia and their carers have the right to enjoy life to the full. Participating in arts activity, rekindling and learning new artistic skills enables them to bypass dementia symptoms and enjoy new creative experiences together.
Arts 4 Dementia is a young charity helping to develop and co-ordinate dynamic high-quality events at arts venues as cognitive rehabilitation for families affected by dementia – from diagnosis.
