What is Arts on Prescription?

What if doctors didn’t always prescribe drugs for the ageing population? What if they prescribed art in all its rich and varied forms?

HammondCare’s Arts on Prescription is a unique arts program bringing together professional artists and people aged over 65.

Whether the artistic focus is painting, drawing, dance or singing, the program aims to promote healthy and active aging for people living with dementia, who are experiencing social isolation or enduring an ongoing illness. The program activities aim to reduce anxiety and depression, renew a sense of purpose, promote self-discovery and create community.
