Join us for Creativity and the Dementia-Friendly Church where we will seek to focus on new possibilities – exploring what can happen when we approach people living with dementia with compassion, curiosity and a desire to be present.
What is the event all about?
Living with dementia presents many challenges. Experiences of loss and difficulty are common to all those who are living with and caring for those with dementia, yet there are also rich opportunities for connection and creativity. It can take a shift in thinking to experience the possibility of these new gifts, and the resources of the whole community.
Livability’s Dementia-Friendly Churches Programme has been engaging church communities in considering practical responses to dementia, looking at worship, theolo gy, community partnering and encouraging participation.
What will the event cover?
Hearing from those with direct experience of experimenting with new approaches, exploring creative tools, we will also explore how our theology and worship can provide inspiration through the ups and downs of living with dementia.
Creativity and the Dementia-Friendly Church is:
- An event to celebrate creativity and its relationship to dementia through a series of inspiring talks, practical workshops, and theological reflection.
- An opportunity to share the challenges, exploring supporting someone who is living with dementia as well as their carers.
- An invitation to churches, people living with dementia and their carers, health and social care practitioners, faith-based community and voluntary sector organisations
Who is this for?
If you, or your church wants to reach out and support people with dementia and their carers in your community, then this event is for you.
Tickets cost £20.
