Arts 4 Dementia

Empowering people with dementia through the arts

To work in partnership with existing agencies to inspire and re-energise people living with dementia in the community, to bring fulfilment to their lives - and provide opportunities for quality time with their carers and loved ones - through engagement with their chosen art form.

 

- Arts 4 Dementia believes that people living with dementia in the community - like the rest of us - have the right to enjoy life to the full.

People's artistic and imaginative responses can remain strong for years after the onset of dementia.

 Engagement with arts brings benefits both for those with dementia and to their loved ones through sharing such experiences.

Through our work with other agencies, Arts 4 Dementia is spreading the word and facilitating high quality arts events so that families, rather than just having to cope, can help to transform the lives of their loved ones.

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.
