Work with the Elderly

We have been delivering work for older people and those suffering from dementia since 2009. The company has worked in a number of settings from community groups to residential care homes and in EMI units (Elderly Mentally Infirm) for those suffering with late stages of dementia, as highlighted on Age of Creativity.

Project work for older people and for those suffering from dementia follows the company ethos of unlocking creativity and developing confidence and self esteem through a range of creative mediums. The sessions consist of a mixture of movement, drama, music and song, creative writing and poetry. These activities are used to draw out creative ideas and tap into memories in order to help participants express themselves as an individual and build new relationships and/or re connect people with their families and/or communities.

Our work with the elderly has proved very successful in all settings as it allows participants a chance to show their talents and celebrate their individuality. This is particularly important to older people and dementia sufferers as they are often victims of isolation and discrimination. The activities give them a vehicle to express themselves and this often improves their overall wellbeing and health.

Our passion and understanding of this work has also lead Qdos Creates to design training packages for carers and/or family members who wish to find new ways of connecting with their loved one when particularly in the case of dementia old methods may not be possible or effective.
