How the Arts Can Help


Accessing the creative part of your brain overrides the stresses of memory loss, elevates mood, re-energises and restores a sense of personal identity. 

Enjoy More through Artistic Stimulation

  • Singing along to a favorite tune challenges and triggers the memory. 
  • Study a picture or photograph. See even more in it. Discuss ideas with a companion.
  • Walk into an art gallery with a companion. Discuss a picture, sculpture, piece of furniture, ceramic. Enjoy their qualities. What is the artist’s intention? Explore, argue and enjoy the possibilities. The stimulus of Arts 4 Dementia sessions at the Wallace Collection evoked animated responses from our participants, and endured after sessions were over.
  • Sit in front seats at a theatre matinee, lunchtime concert, poetry gig, stand-up comedy. Watch the expressions of the performers. Share ideas with your companion. Challenge each other.
  • Access your natural creative skill: take photographs, paint, draw, model, play the piano, listen to live music, play music, dance, sing, exercise, explore the scents and arrangements of flowers, garden plants, trees. 
  • Taking a course at an arts venue, you can look forward to regular social inspirational opportunities, quality time with a loved one. 
  • Live life to the full. Have fun.
