We're proud to be an official exhibitor at the 'Social prescribing & community - beyond the pandemic' conference
Make creative memories together
We understand the pressures you are under working in health and social care and want to make it as simple as possible for you to make a referral that will benefit each and everyone of the older adults you support. All we need is a name, telephone number and consent of the older person you would like us to support and we can give them a call to get our process started.
WHAT DO WE DO
Unforgettable Experiences provide live, creative and interactive artistic sessions which are tailored to each older persons interests. Sessions include art, music, creative writing, history, dance, drama and photography. Our Digital Activity Buddies provides technical support and act like a befriender to help older people to get online.
All of our sessions have been developed to support older people with mental health concerns, mild cognitive impairment, mild to moderate dementia or neurological conditions and their carers.
Older people will require access to some form of technology and internet to participate.
WHY WORK WITH US
In addition to supporting you to achieve wellbeing outcomes for your patients, we can help you to save time by helping older people to develop digital skills enabling them to reach out to other services for support and family members to reduce loneliness and isolation. We're honest, passionate and friendly. We'd love to explore how we can work together.
