Elderflowers in Lothians

Organisation : Hearts & Minds
Grant Amount : £ 10,000
Project Dates : November 2013 to October 2014

We believe that the restorative power of the performing arts can be utilized in the healthcare environment to improve lives, renew hopes and generate positive change.

We want to improve the experience of elderly people with dementia in care using clown-based techniques to encourage communication, interaction and laughter.

Our Elderflower programme aims to improve the lives of those with mid to severe Dementia in Royal Edinburgh Hospital and Findlay House.
