Age Exchange is a national centre for Reminiscence Arts and dementia intervention
At Age Exchange we put people at the heart of what we do.
Care and Support
We provide a wide range of support for people with dementia and their families and carers including outreach and targeted care services. Our ground breaking unique dementia intervention service RADIQL uses Reminiscence Arts to deliver dementia services in a wide variety of settings. Our expertise includes outreach to community projects, care home person-centred care and creative care groups for the carers of those with dementia.
Our high quality intergenerational story telling projects bring together young and old across generations to explore shared feelings of isolation, to celebrate our shared heritages and to become stronger together.
We have over 30 years working in the creative arts with communities so as to promote understanding and support Individuals to enhance and develop new skills. Over the decades we have built a gallery of work with thousands of people, working in schools, in community centres and in our own theatre.
We provide high quality training in the field of Reminiscence Arts practice in the community, independent living schemes, extra care schemes, libraries and museums. We draw on best practice, research and 30 years of experience.
