Castle Lodge Care Home in Antrim work very closely with their local community. Last week they invited the Oasis Caring in Action group in to undertake the dementia experience, to help them understand and empathise with people in their community who live with the condition.
Una Brady, Home Manager, said: “The group work hard in the community to empower the people that they help. They really enjoyed the dementia experience as it helped them to walk in the shoes of someone who lives with dementia every day. After they completed the experience the group spent some time with the residents at the home which had a fantastic impact on their well-being. The group are coming back to the home next month to help us run a healthy eating workshop.”
