The creativity and dedication behind Alzheimer’s Support’s art groups has been recognised nationally.

The four art groups — in Pewsey, Holt, Lyneham and most recently  Warminster — are finalists in the Outstanding Arts and Creativity category of the national Dementia Care Awards. 

The groups meet weekly or fortnightly to create work together under the guidance of a professional artist. As well as allowing people to express themselves creatively, they are wonderfully supportive social occasions.

It is the third consecutive year that Alzheimer’s Support has featured in the prestigious national awards. In 2016 Grant Newton was a finalist for the Dementia Manager of the Year and Support at Home won Best Team in 2017.

The art group team will find out if they are winners in November.
