Teaching family carers and volunteers reminiscence skills and activities as a way of using the long-term memory of people with dementia to enhance communication and lessen social isolation.
Our mission is to change lives through reminiscence, improving health and wellbeing.
1. To reduce isolation and loneliness
2. To promote intergenerational understanding
3. To improve the quality of life and care for older people and those with dementia
4. To support carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing
Age Exchange strives to be person-centred, creative, open and inclusive in all that we do. We believe that these values are central to health and wellbeing.
People are at the heart of everything that we do. We believe that focusing on the individual, their stories and experiences is the cornerstone of reducing loneliness and improving wellbeing. We use the creative arts as the basis for our reminiscence work.
We want to create an environment where everyone feels valued and included. We recognise that differences exist and thus respond to individual need.
