Positive Dementia Care courses are returning in the Autumn.
Parties: We’re having a fantastic time working with people from Birchwood Highland around the Highlands to make fabulous hats, masks, costumes, banners, bunting etc whilst building connections, confidence and creative communication in celebration of Birchwood’s 30th year. The next all-inclusive parties are Saturday June 17th (Invergordon, Natal Gardens) and Tuesday June 20th (Fort William, The Parade). Exciting!!
What does Creativity In Care do?
We help reduce health inequalities and address social determinants of health (WHO) through creative learning programmes and socially engaged arts. Our Nine Lives project, funded by People’s Health Trust was chosen as an Arts, Health and Wellbeing good practice project. The project increased collective control, self-esteem, independence and confidence, and built social links and ties.
Creativity In Care’s work is about feeling connected and more resilient by expressing ourselves and ideas using stories, poetry or the arts. Our focus is on wellness. Through connection, people become empowered to go beyond limitations… to experience inclusion and joyfulness. Creative learning processes celebrate life and we dwell in the land of possibility. Creativity In Care’s vision of a mentally healthy world is where each person realises how amazing he or she is… and sees that amazingness in others.
Who we work with:
People of all ages, abilities and positions in society are welcome to suggest, co-create or join a learning programme or community arts project. Our work is inclusive of the general public, care staff, artists, and people diagnosed with long-term conditions such as dementia, through to end of life care. We work with people living with mental ill health and people at risk of isolation. We work with care-givers, families, people going through criminal justice systems, community, private and statutory organisations.
