Relaxing and therapeutic exploration of the creative mind

Relaxing and therapeutic exploration of the creative mind

Aimed at people with dementia and their carers, Creative Lunch offers two low-impact interactive sessions with a shared lunch in between.

Session One - uses movement to music, singing and props to awaken mind and body, encouraging people with dementia to express themselves in a comfortable and supportive environment

.

Session Two - uses visual arts to stimulate creative thinking through the making, painting and drawing of individual pieces.

Why get involved

The activity sessions can help people with dementia to improve their hand-eye coordination,memory, recognition, strength, confidence and self-esteem.

For carers, CreativeLunch offers time to relax, chat and share experiences. Led by experienced instructors from the Intergenerational Dance Consortium, carers have the option to take part or sit back and take the weight off.
