Each breath is valuable: an evaluation of an arts in care homes programme

509 Arts
The Arts in Care Homes programme was a joint funding initiative with the Arts Council England (2013-2016) to explore models of professional arts practice with and for older people in care homes over three years.


Four programmes are evaluated in this report:

@Home: a commercial subscription model led by We Do in Huddersfield

Home Service: a consortium model, originally led by Arts in Health Cornwall and then by Creative Kernow

Imagine: a care home led model, led by the Abbeyfield Society in partnership with City Arts Nottingham and Nottingham City Council

Making of Me: an artist development model, let by The Courtyard, Hereford working first with Shaw Healthcare and the Order of St John in Gloucester and Oxford.
