Event description

Description

This course is aimed at care workers and activity coordinators who are interested in providing creative activity in their care settings. Care settings can be residential, respite, day care or home care.

Creative Paths are specialists in the delivery of creative activities and learning in care settings. Creative participation and expression is a basic human need and maintains our sense of well-being. Recent studies have shown that access to good creative opportunities can enable people with dementia to communicate emotions and ideas; it can also stimulate memories and encourage engagement and interaction.

This one day confidence building and skills based course benefits people with health and social care needs by providing the people that care for them with the inspiration, motivation and tools to provide a creative activity care service in their care settings. The session is a mix of learning through active participation, group work and one to one activities.
