Practical experience confirmed once again that arts and culture play a significant part in wellbeing.
Over 120 people visited the Creative Care Expo, hosted by the Cultural Arm of the Kent Dementia Action Alliance. Arts organisations and practitioners from across Kent came together in County Hall, Maidstone, to show visitors from care homes, the NHS, local councils and other care providers, the many and varied ways in which they engage older people and those living with dementia in art and creative activities.
We led two reminiscence sessions and were delighted to welcome 20 people across both.
With the intention of putting together a sample of the stories, I recorded both sessions – and found I couldn’t possibly delete any of them!
Therefore, we have two audio/slideshows to share with you – enjoy!
