A.R.T.S. (*Activities to Revitalise The Soul) for Brain Health: Social prescribing as diagnostic practice for dementia – from despair to desire, the product of a two-year national campaign, aims to transform diagnostic practice, establishing a pathway to refer patients at the onset of symptoms to empowering arts to preserve brain health.
Leaders in dementia prevention and innovation, creative ageing, social prescribing, culture, health and wellbeing, and GPs and memory services around the UK inform A4D’s national campaign to advance social prescribing as automatic practice at the onset of symptoms of dementia, to preserve brain health – bridging the lonely fear-filled months until diagnosis.
“Social prescription offers a tremendous opportunity to empower people from the onset of symptoms – both the individual and their partner – to override strain and preserve brain health and cultural interests together in the community, for years longer.” Veronica Franklin Gould, President, Arts 4 Dementia.
