Research shows that engaging with the arts improves the physical, mental and social wellbeing of older people. HammondCare have been trialling a participatory arts program called Arts on Prescription. Older people are referred to the program by a healthcare practitioner and guided by a professional artist through an arts based small group activity. https://www.hammond.com.au/services/arts-on-prescription-sector-guide Council is investigating trialling the program in the Southern Highlands.
