    Voucher scheme to promote arts in care homes

    20.09.19 Ahead of the National Day of Arts in Care Homes on 24 September, NAPA (National Activity Providers Association) has launched its Arts in Care Voucher Scheme to promote arts provision in care homes. The Arts in Care Vouchers can be purchased as presents by relatives and friends of people in care, so that care homes can use the funds raised to provide arts activities for residents. “Relatives wanting to buy a present for a family member or friend or to say thanks to the home for the care provided will be able to purchase an Arts in Care Voucher,” said NAPA executive director Hilary Woodhead. The voucher scheme is part of the Arts in Care Homes project, led by NAPA and funded jointly by Baring Foundation and Raine Foundation.

  • Dementia friendly ambulances launched

    Dementia friendly ambulances launched

    19.09.19 An NHS trust in the East Midlands has become what is believed to be the first in the UK to launch dementia friendly ambulances. East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) has been working with the University of Northampton’s post-diagnostic support centre UnityDEM on adapting ambulances so that people with dementia feel less frightened and confused when travelling in them. Four dementia friendly ambulances are already in service, and it is hoped that all 104 ambulances across the two counties will have been adapted by the end of October. Adaptations include a “reminiscence window,” music from past decades, hand-knitted “Twiddlemuffs,” individualised information about people’s needs and preferences in the form of a “This is Me” document, and a guide for staff on how to use the adaptations and communicate effectively about them, including with people who may be unable to communicate verbally.
