Zest workshops are themed participatory and sensory activity sessions that use performance-based activities to bring life, energy and fun to individuals with dementia and their environments.
Zest Workshops use a variety of performance activities such as song, movement, music, story making, puppetry and other sensory stimuli.
Zest workshops are carefully designed and delivered to take participants on a creative journey to a different place or space.
Workshops are available as one-offs or for a larger injection of Zest, we can also offer a cost-effective package of workshops.
Popular themes include Desert Island, Wimbledon, Dance Hall and Winter Wonderland.
About the workshops
Our workshops are expertly facilitated in a relationship-centred and client-led way for groups of approximately 15 people with mixed cognitive and physical abilities.
Each Zest workshop runs for one and a half hours and includes a break with themed refreshments.
For people wishing to run themed sensory workshops themselves we provide Bright Boxes for Groups and Bright Boxes One to One. These are boxes of themed resources to use with people living with dementia in a group setting or one to one in a care setting or at home.
These boxes range from £25 to £85 and come in a variety of themes with new themes being added all the time.
