Arts and Dementia | Breathing Space

Breathing Space is HOOT’s specialist Arts for Dementia service which provides fun, engaging and accessible activities that someone living with dementia can enjoy with their family member, partner, carer or support worker. Being creative makes us feel good and has proven benefits to mental and physical health and wellbeing.

  • In the process of obtaining a diagnosis of early stage dementia
