    Chief Executive of Arts 4 Dementia, Veronica Franklin Gould, says: “When people are first diagnosed with dementia, sufferers and their families are prepared for dealing with increased memory loss, but there is little direction to help them keep their minds engaged. The creative part of the brain can continue to function for many more years, and artistic stimulation is a powerful, sociable way to open up communication channels, and to enable to live better and longer in their own homes. “We hope that recommendations made at the Arts 4 Dementia Best Practice Conference will encourage people with memory loss and their families to engage in arts activities of special interest to them, to pursue a fulfilled life for as long as possible.” Arts 4 Dementia works to bridge the gap in dementia care with an arts outreach programme to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia. The charity plans a London-wide programme of weekly arts sessions for people with dementia, covering music, art, comedy, dance, drama, photography, poetry and communication n 2012. Arts 4 Dementia’s website (www.arts4dementia.org.uk) signposts arts activities available through the charity and nationwide, offering advice to people with memory loss, their families, carers and care services, arts organisations and all touched by dementia.
