Our vision is to promote a good state of wellbeing and mental health within the Spanish and Portuguese speaking communities living in London. We recognise that having access to quality healthcare is essential for everyone, so we offer free advice and guidance through our qualified advisers so you can access the community care and both physical and mental health services that are offered by the NHS. We also organise specific workshops to improve awareness of how to lead both a physically and mentally healthy life, for example our popular Relaxation Techniques workshop.
Arts 4 Dementia (A4D) signposts arts workshops and events across the UK for people living with dementia and their companions. These can be found on the A4D website. A4D also partners with arts organisations across London to provide arts opportunities to empower people affected by dementia in the community (typically, these are a series of 8-10 workshops).
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.
