We provide regular arts sessions in reminiscence, drama, movement, music/singing, creative writing and arts and crafts, which can be shared with family and friends.

Aims

  • To reduce isolation through building positive relationships between older people, their families, support staff and peers.
  • To build resilience around ‘successful aging.’
  • To improve the mental and physical wellbeing of older people through raising their confidence and self esteem and sharing moments of happiness.

Where are the sessions run?

In residential homes and day centres for people living with dementia in London, Hertfordshire and Essex

DURATION

Sessions are bespoke but will usually be for 45 – 75 minutes. Running weekly over a period from 3 – 24 months.

FACILITATION

The sessions are run by experienced arts facilitators and cover a variety of different art forms, depending on the interests of the group.

COST

All projects for the groups aim to receive grant funding. Members can give voluntary donations to help cover some basic costs but do not pay for JaZanne Arts artists.

JaZanne Arts supports the groups to apply for funding or does so on their behalf.

MANAGEMENT

JaZanne Arts directors will ensure the smooth running of the projects. At least one of the directors plus other experienced arts facilitators will deliver the sessions along with trained older volunteers.

Safeguarding

"The way you used the objects and linked them to the songs was so simple yet got them so involved and telling stories we hadn’t heard before, I am definitely going to use that method from now on."

"I learnt a lot from them, we succeeded in drawing them out more – I think they enjoyed the songs the most, – if they didn’t want to talk in the beginning they did in the end.."
