MIND Active recognises that the increasing age of the population means that more older people are entering the care system, and more dementia sufferers are being cared for in their own homes.

These people, in order to feel valued and useful members of society, need to keep active, not only physically, but also mentally.

MIND Active seeks to complement and build on activities available within residential homes and to enable people living with dementia in their own homes to continue as part of the community. In this way we hope to enhance their lives, as well as those who are caring for them.
