Engage & Create

Description

Engage & Create is a social enterprise working to improve quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers

Respecting the abilities and interests of the individual, we use the neutral stimulus of art to enable discussion and creative activity to increase confidence, communication skills and well-being.

Ignite Sessions

Tailored to the needs of the participants, our workshops are a combination of art appreciation and hands-on creative sessions. Through exploration of artistic themes, we encourage a social informative discussion, stimulating brain function and facilitating enhanced communication with peers and caregivers.

Training

We offer a range of training programmes to support professional and family caregivers in the use of Ignite Sessions and Engage & Create’s technique for successful communication with people living with dementia. Tailored to the needs of the trainees, our programmes provide a toolkit of art-related techniques to

a) provide much needed stimulation

b) support verbal and non-verbal communication

Consultancy

Working in partnership with providers, we help to develop reputations and services that stand out, re-energise and inspire both staff and customers.
