Age Exchange works with older adults to support independence, good quality of life and combat loneliness by creating opportunities to express themselves in the present through verbal and non-verbal ways. We work in person-centred way with people and may use music, movement, art, craft, games, handling objects, film, discussions, sharing and other means to work with memory.
With over 30 years’ experience Age Exchange is recognised internationally as the leading practitioners, consultants and sources of information about reminiscence. Age Exchange has been awarded £468,000 by the Big Lottery Fund as part of the Reaching Communities Programme. This award will enable us to provide support for older people with dementia and their carers through innovative Reminiscence Arts Intervention. Age Exchange with the support of partners and funders aims to extend its expertise from residential care into preventative care, working to maintain the health and well-being of people with dementia and their carers living in the community, in the boroughs of Lewisham, Greenwich and Southwark.
They have launched a new project to provide day care services and one to one support for people with dementia and their family carers.
