Merlin MS Centre
Past collaboration – Tamsin and I used to work every Friday with the attendees of the Merlin MS Centre at the beautiful Bradbury House, Hewaswater, St. Austell; using art and creativity as a means for social interaction, gently challenging tasks and education and development – problem solving skills.
We have lots of fun working with the dedicated excellent Respite Support Team at the Merlin MS Centre and are always interested in finding out what the attendees want to do next.

Tamsin and I work across Cornwall providing creative respite creative activities that promote motor skills, interaction, problem solving and seasonally related tasks: calendar events built into the creativity to support orientation of time and place.
The time Tamsin and I spend with the memory cafe attendees allows cares some time off for a get together in an adjoining room over tea and cake, whilst their loved ones are happily engaged and cared for by a team of dedicated volunteer support staff.
