Uniting care homes and communities

Uniting care homes and communities

There are 433,000 people living in care homes in the UK and it is estimated that 70% of care home residents live with dementia. This is an enormous number of people with dementia that we need to ensure are part of their local community.

Funded by NHS England, Airedale Social Movement has been trialling different ways of uniting people from the local community and care homes in eight neighbourhoods across Yorkshire (in Leeds, Keighley and Skipton). This gives residents time to chat, opportunities to get involved and to share their interests.
