Relax and Revive

In partnership with Qdos Creates

Qdos Creates provide Relax and Revive workshops for carers and those affected by dementia, unlocking creativity and developing confidence and self esteem through a range of creative mediums. The sessions consist of a mixture of movement, drama, music and song, creative writing and poetry. These activities are used to draw out creative ideas and tap into memories in order to help participants express themselves as individuals and build new relationships and/or reconnect people with their families and/or communities.

The work that Qdos Creates does with people with dementia has proved very successful as it allows participants a chance to show their talents and celebrate their individuality. This is particularly important as they and their carers are often victims of isolation and exclusion.

The activities give them a vehicle to express themselves and this often improves their overall wellbeing and health.

In groups of ten sessions referred by our Carer Support service.
