Arts in Care

We are really thrilled to have worked with the Care Inspectorate on a new resource pack to support arts in care homes. The pack includes information, guidance, resources, examples and useful links designed to inspire and enable care home staff to support older people to enjoy engaging in creative arts. 

In many care homes for older people across Scotland staff organise and run creative arts sessions. The aim of the resource is to increase the ability of care providers to run a variety of participative art sessions, realise people's potential to engage in the arts and enable people to take part in the arts in the local community, should they choose to do that. Professional artists have shared their advice and creative skills to support residents in poetry, printmaking, creating simple pottery, singing and creative dace.
