Pioneering initiative that will model future provision of Reminiscence Arts in Care

Reminiscence Arts and Dementia – Impact on Quality of Life (RADIQL), is a three year programme created by Age Exchange. The programme aims to provide a model of excellence in the provision of person-centred creative care for older people in South London. It seeks to improve the quality of life and wellbeing for the older people who participate in the programme, specifically those with dementia.

The initiative has been funded with a grant of £595,500 from Guy's and St Thomas' Charity in line with their ambitions to support innovation in health which will improve the health and wellbeing of the population of the two London Boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, but which may influence changes in policy and practice more widely.
