Do You Know About Home Instead Charities UK?

Did you know that Home Instead also has its own charity branch, which is called ‘Home Instead Charities UK’?

Did you know that Home Instead has a charity, ‘Home Instead Charities UK’? It aims to bring happiness and joy into the lives of our ageing population through giving grants to groups all over the UK to fund activities that support well being or programmes to reduce/and/or prevent isolation and loneliness.

Home Instead Charities have recently awarded a £500 grant to Dignity In Dementia, a small local, South Cumbrian social enterprise that supports individuals affected by dementia and aims to help make their lives as normal and as positive as possible.

They do this by providing a range of services including free to attend zoom family carers courses that educate and inspire, so that family carers are able to respond more confidently and positively to their spouse, partner or relative with dementia. Another hugely important service they offer is their Behaviour Support Service. Family carers are able to access support when the behaviour of a family member with dementia changes and becomes problematic. After finding out about the situation, Dignity in Dementia will offer advice and strategies that will hopefully help improve things.

They also run a range of dementia embracing community groups, such as singing groups in Silverdale and Sedbergh and zoom poetry groups. More recently they have started sociable table tennis in Arnside. However the funding that Home Instead Charities awarded was specifically to support their Dementia Friendly Walking Group and their Woodland Wellness sessions. The Dementia Friendly Walking group meets on alternate Wednesday mornings for a 45 minute walk in lovely surroundings around Cartmel, Milnthorpe, Arnside, Kendal and Staveley, whilst the Woodland Wellness sessions meet in the woods on Arnside Knott on alternate Monday mornings for nature related craft activities or other nature related fun.
