Age Exchange

Age Exchange are recruiting for arts practitioners to train as part of their RADIQL programme of reminiscence arts with people experiencing Dementia.

To access the application pack go to www.age-exchange.org.uk/vacancies/ 

A study on the work undertaken by Royal Holloway University found that the creative engagement offered in RADIQL practice improved the wellbeing of participants by 42% and increased positive behaviour by 25%. It also highlighted recommendations for improving practice including different approaches to working with and training care staff and the need to have effective exit strategies in place so people are not built up and then let down as a project finishes. Really interesting reading;
