Arts 4 Dementia

Arts for Dementia helps to develop activities at arts venues to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia and their carers.  They liaise with arts organisation education departments, memory services care teams and other agencies including the Alzhemer's Society, Age UK, Dementia Pathfinders, memory and care services, to help set up, facilitate and promote creative projects at art venues for people living with dementia in the community and companions.

A key feature of its work is to encourage the spread of this practice, and to signpost activities by art form, so that those who need will be able to find artistic stimulation in their chosen art form close to where they live.

It also provides training for arts facilitators working creatively with people in the early stages of dementia and carers.

For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
