Residents and staff at Camelot Care’s Freshfields Nursing Home in Plymouth are looking forward to taking part for the second time in the Archie Project, a scheme that links local schools with people with dementia in the community.

 

Part of Reminiscence Learning, a West Country-based charity that aims to promote, maintain and improve activity and education by working with people with dementia, the Archie Project is a unique intergenerational awareness-raising project created to reduce the stigma and fear associated with the word dementia.
