Dementia Project

Recollection: a project for people with dementia and their carers

Recollection is a FREE group for people with dementia and their carers. It is a partnership with Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) and Bath Preservation Trust (No. 1 Royal Crescent).

Recollection provides an opportunity for participants and their carers to spend time together enjoying museum collections as a focus for inspiration to explore, develop and express creative skills. The sessions aim to be relaxing and enjoyable with afternoon tea plus art and craft activities on offer.

We are currently awaiting news of funding to continue this project in 2019. If you wish to be contacted if/when future dates are available please contact the Holburne Learning Department – learning@holburne.org or 01225 388568

One carer stated:

“It’s re-introduced him to his love of art” and “It’s great to realise that you’re not alone”.
