Arts and dementia

Two older people talking

Any times at home on the phone

The Breathing Space project is looking for people who are living with early stage dementia (and a partner, family member, friend or carer) who might enjoy some conversation and creative time at home.

We’ll chat over the phone about the things you like and that make you happy starting with the all-important question: how do you like your tea?

We'll also provide you with fun and simple creative activities connected to your favourite things. Why? Because being creative makes us feel good and it is proven to be beneficial to our mental health and well-being including for those living with dementia.

How to get started

Breathing Space is free for Kirklees residents who have

  • A diagnosis of dementia (or are waiting to recieve a diagnosis)
  • Spoken to their GP about memory concerns
