Welcome the Elderflowers.

Hello, Welcome to Hearts & Minds
We are a Scottish arts-in-health charity whose aim is to improve the experience of people in hospital and in hospice, residential and respite care by using the performing arts to encourage communication, interaction and laughter.
We achieve our aim through two specialist creative programmes; The Clowndoctors, who work specifically with children, and The Elderflowers, who work with ladies and gentlemen living with dementia.
We raise smiles all across Scotland, from Inverness down to the Borders.
In 2015 we launched our new campaign; Adopt A Clowndoctor – where you can help us raise the funds to deliver smiles and laughter to children who need them most. Watch the below to find out more and visit www.heartsminds.org.uk/adoptaclowndoctor
