“Prama’s work is an example of best practice”

New creative project to support people living with dementia

People living with dementia and their close family members are invited to join a new free art and reminiscence project in Poole.

Mementos is a new group organised by Dorset charity Prama and Borough of Poole Arts Service and is open to people living with dementia and their family carers. A team of professional artists will work with the group and support them to share memories and use textiles, fabrics and photos to create beautiful and personal mementos.

Katrina Keeling from Prama said: “Caring for someone with memory loss can be stressful at times and it is so important to find activities you can enjoy together. The Mementos group is a chance to enjoy a relaxing and rewarding activity together, to learn new skills and make friends.”

Anna Shiels, Arts Programme Manager, Borough of Poole Arts Service, said: “Working with textiles can be really beneficial for people with dementia as it is such a tactile experience. The sessions will be relaxed and informal so everyone can work at their own pace and focus on what people enjoy and can achieve together.”

Mementos is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and is free to take part for people with dementia and their family carers. The group will meet on Thursday mornings at Cynthia Close in Poole. To book your place, or to find out more about taking part in the Mementos project, either as a participant or as a volunteer, please contact Anna Shiels on 01202 633971 or email
