A photography project, working with Poole Intermediate Care Services (ICP). This was initially to reproduce the ‘Beautiful’ project, but has quickly turned into a social get together where participants share photographs and remember aspects of their lives. Some photography goes on within the sessions. What has been successful is the inclusion of the older peoples photography club, the Happy Snappers. This club is a direct result of the ‘Beautiful’ project, three years ago.
One idea being developed is to compile a book about the valuable work undertaken by the ICP team, as this service will probably be cut in the near future. The book will form a record of their achievement (they are just over a year in operation) and show the wide benefit of providing this type of service to people, and their carers, who suffer from dementia or Alzheimers.
