Wonder-Full is Fable Arts’ new therapeutic arts programme for older people staying or living in care homes, health settings and residential schemes.
It aims to improve the quality of life of vulnerable, older people, by embedding a regular weekly programme of creative engagement and participation into the setting’s everyday practice, in order to offer meaningful engagement, stimulate imagination and discussion, build resilience, re-light fires of wonder and curiosity to engage creative capacity and encourage social connections with the group.
This Spring we’re launching Wonder-Full across all wards at Clifton Hospital in Lytham to support patient mental health and wellbeing and contribute enabling earlier discharge from hospital for patients.
We’ll be exploring patients' thoughts, memories, feelings and emotions connected to nature and being in the outdoors, using the creative practices of visual art, creative writing, movement and music.
Wonder-Full is supported by the United Utilities Lancashire Community fund managed by Lancashire Community Foundation and Fylde Council.
