The project will work with care homes across the Bristol, BANES, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset areas to help them build long-lasting and meaningful relationships with their local communities.
Making Pals will work with 16 care homes during its scoping phase to help them understand how residents would like to engage with their community. Then it will work with them to make these requests a reality. Throughout the project, Making Pals will support many other care homes across the region to connect with their community.
By encouraging the public to engage with care homes as part of their community, the project hopes to change public’s perceptions of care homes while empowering their residents.
