Arts 4 Dementia is a charity (No 1140842) founded in 2011. Based in London, we: - develop innovative arts workshop programmes to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia and their carers - uniquely signpost arts events nationwide on our website www.arts4dementia.org.uk enabling families affected with dementia in the community and clinicians looking for stimulation for their patients easily to find opportunities nearby. - provide early stage dementia awareness training for arts facilitators and encourage and support them in delivering person-centred arts programmes for dementia. The 600 facilitators we have trained to date will reach over 10,000 people with dementia and carers this year. A4D focuses on what people can achieve, often very much more than they imagine. Why. Creative skills can remain vibrant for years after the onset of dementia. Neuroscientists and psychologists, supported by A4D’s evaluation, conferences and reports, have demonstrated that engaging in artistic activity is a highly effective non-pharmacological way to reawaken and re-stimulate cognitive ability.
