This How To Guide will give care home managers and staff guidance on how to create a community within care homes. The guide will explain how to bring members of the local community into the home to volunteer, befriend, run activities and form friendship groups | Alzheimer’s Society
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.
