Staying Out aims to tackle social isolation and reduce hospital admissions in those aged 65 years and over who are living with a long term health condition by offering them a weekly opportunity to attend an activity that stimulates creative and social engagement in a supportive environment staffed by a multi-professional team made up of artists, paid carers and volunteers. Support from qualified carers ensures that any health concerns can be raised and participants signposted to additional services, where necessary, thereby reducing strain on hospital services.
