Alzheimer’s Society has been running the Airedale Social Movement Programme in Airedale, Wharfedale, Craven and Leeds since August 2016.  The programme aims to bring local communities into the care home, and put the care home at the heart of the community.

One of the objectives of the programme is to spread the programme so that others can replicate the work that has been undertaken, and the Alzheimer’s Society have launched resources to support this including a How To Guide for Care Home staff.

Letter and poster templates are also available to download here
