MindSCAPE seeks to enable reconnection with the landscape by people living with dementia or in the early stages of memory loss, through a wide variety of activities including arts, woodland and craft activities. The project aims to share skills and build the confidence of carers to continue to provide mindSCAPE activities for the person or people they care for.
The aim is to adapt the existing mindSCAPE project, currently run for those still living independently in the community, for delivery in a residential care setting, in order to reach those unable to attend the existing project. The legacy of the project will be through enabling carers and care homes to undertake mindSCAPE activities, through training and easy to follow step-by-step guides.
Participants will be able to reconnect with the landscape of the Forest of Dean through mindSCAPE activities and the gathering of stories and memories of life in the forest.
How to Get Involved:
The project will work with a number of care homes in the Forest of Dean, delivering mindSCAPE sessions and providing support and easy to follow activities for continued use. Interested care homes will be sought during the first half of 2016.
