          HammondCare is an Australian nonprofit healthcare company that specializes in assisted living and dementia care. It is also one of my “Beacons of Hope” organizations. It has been a leader in the integration of the arts into healthcare.  Today’s post allows you a free download of their new guide for Arts on Prescription. I suggest using the A4 version as the easiest to read on computer. Explore the rest of their site to get you new ideas for your own community.

Correction: This program is in Australia, not the UK.

     Creative aging is a way of life; the arts have so much to contribute to the lives of all of us. This program of  “prescribing the arts” at Hammond Care is a model other assisted living facilities and senior centers might well emulate. Today’s post brings you an introduction and video about the program, which is a model in Australia that is being implemented in other countries.

One of the most interesting developments in the integration of the arts into healthcare is the emerging role of the arts as prescription medicine. I will be posting at least two information resources on Arts by Prescription today.

The UK and Australia appear to be the leaders in this innovation. This post outlines new developments in Sydney, Australia. In an informative interview with Jade Herriman, Michelle Heldon–who has been involved with the National Center for Creative Learning in Australia–provides a detailed description of this developing program. It is the best introduction I have found to the emerging innovation of Arts by Prescription.
