Matinee Outreach - Arts Project for People with Dementia and their Carers

Matinee Outreach - Arts Project for People with Dementia and their Carers

As we head into Autumn and Winter, why not try something creative and new from the safety of your own home?

Matinée Outreach is an arts-based project for people living with dementia and their carers who are isolated by Covid19 and not able to access online activities.

Do you live with dementia, or care for someone living with dementia?

Have you felt socially isolated and not comfortable using online technologies?

Have you been frustrated over lockdown by the lack of activities you can do, and missed learning and trying new things?

If so, why not try the Matinee Outreach project?

Using the phone and post you will have 1:1 sessions with a professional artist exploring a range of activities e.g. stories, creative writing, craft activities, creative conversations, and trying new things out.

The project's artists are both experienced in working alongside people living with dementia and are looking forward to working creatively and flexibly with you via telephone and post.

There are a limited number of places available on the Matinée Outreach project, so if you are interested please get in touch now.
