Creativity sessions for seniors

Do you need help with an elderly relative? Time out to recharge?

I am a creative arts worker and artist.  I love working one-on-one with the elderly, using my passion for the arts and life stories to stimulate and inspire creativity.

I tailor the sessions to suit each person’s interests and capabilities. Activities include water colour painting, collage, singing with the ukulele, dance/movement to music and storytelling with puppets. I bring art books to look at together and poems and short stories to read aloud.  I also use my skills as a biographer to stimulate memory and encourage reminiscing.

 

I have had experience as a caregiver in London and Auckland with a variety of conditions including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. I have a current driver’s licence, St John First Aid Certificate, police check and referees. 

 

COST: $35 per hour (minimum two hours per session) plus transport costs
