Creating lasting connections in our communities
We passionately believe that all older people in care should feel connected to the world around them and valued as individuals. Through our community engagement work we enable this to happen.
Community engagement is increasingly recognised by the care sector and social care commissioners as vital in tackling issues of social isolation in our older populations living in care.
We have two community engagement projects:
- Tangible Memories, a joint project with Bristol University which uses exciting new technology to builds a sense of shared experience and community within care homes.
- The Grateful Society, a funded project that allows us to reach some of Bristol's most isolated residents and enables us to deliver activity sessions to low income care homes.
