Grape Arts received funding from NDI Insurance and this enabled Grape Arts to run their project ‘In the Moment' at Age UK Marion Road Day Centre. This project ran for two hours per week for five weeks. In the Moment is for those with dementia and their family carers/members. Grape Arts created themed workshops to help to stimulate specific memories. Themes such as cinema and film, food and cooking, toys and games, seaside memories, household Items, evenings out, fashion, music and dancing. The workshops involved image, music, poetry, storytelling and artefacts to stimulate creativity.
Every participant received a resource pack to remind them of the workshop content and support them in using reminiscence practice outside of our sessions. These resource packs were designed to the individual, based on the stimuli that worked best over the project.
