Age Exchange, a charity based in Blackheath, aims to combat loneliness and isolation in old age and works closely with those with dementia, helping them to live well with their condition. Reminiscence Arts is Age Exchange's unique approach to unlocking memories through objects and creative exploration. Once a week Reminiscence Arts practitioners host an Artful Caring group, creating a space for those with Dementia and Alzheimer's, which aims to foster creativity as participants recount personal stories and experiences through treasured family objects.
