Matinee Outreach

Published on: Wednesday, 18th November 2020

As we head into Winter, why not try something creative and new from the safety of your own home?

  • Do you live with dementia, or care for someone living with dementia?
  • Have you felt socially isolated and not comfortable using online technologies?
  • Have you been frustrated over lockdown by the lack of activities you can do, and missed learning and trying new things?

Matinée Outreach is an arts-based project for people living with dementia (and their carers) who are isolated by Covid19 and not comfortable with online activities.

  • Using the phone and post you will have 1:1 sessions with a professional artist exploring a range of activities e.g. stories, creative writing, craft activities, creative conversations, and trying new things out.
  • Artists are both experienced in working alongside people living with dementia and are looking forward to working creatively and flexibly via telephone and post.
  • There are a limited number of places available on the Matinée Outreach project, so if you are interested please get in touch.
