The Creativity in Care programme
built on a premise of creatively exploring 'whole' care home environments and investigating how we might develop approaches that best respond to the
individual needs of older people. This strand of work set out to establish models of working that improved engagement of older people in arts activities whilst also establishing a structure for supporting Activity Co-ordinators in delivering arts activities more confidently in residential
care settings. The subsequent project design was informed by a number of training and consultation sessions with
Activity Co-ordinators that took place prior to and during the artist residency at Eastgate Care.
