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
