The Storybox Project : At Home is a groundbreaking activities programme which uses imagination and creativity as a starting point. Building upon 12 years of practical experience, and work in hundreds of care settings, it supports Careworkers and Activity Co-ordinators to deliver top quality, person centred activities, based upon a foundation of empathy, togetherness, and fun. It focuses upon the value of participation in the moment and the engagement of the most vulnerable older people; in particular those living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia.
Each Storybox activity and workshop serves as a starting point to:
- Create shared experiences.
- Encourage an affirmed sense of self.
- Improve physical health.
