Age Concern - Fit as a Fiddle
'Alive and Kicking' Dementia Project
‘Alive and Kicking’ is a project that delivered a series of taster ‘creative exercise’ workshops in High Grove Care Home and Cherry Trees Care Home in Barnsley for people suffering with dementia. The sessions included a mixture of dance/movement, drama, singing, story telling and poetry writing.
Benefits for the participants
- Increased mobility and balance, self esteem and confidence to do tasks independently as a result of taking part in the sessions.
- Strengthened relationships between group members and care home staff.
