Dementia touches very many individuals and families
in the UK and will increasingly do so as our society ages.Thankfully we know that being engaged in the arts such as music, visual art, comedy, drama, or poetry improves the health and well being of people with long term or chronic conditions including dementia.
ARTZ uses artistic and cultural experiences to help people with living with dementia express their thoughts and feelings. We provide opportunities to prompt memory, to stimulate and reminisce through paintings, sculpture, singing, drama and many other activities.
What we believe is that ARTZ can make a real difference to the lives of people with dementia providing them with the experiences that make life worth living.
