We predominantly support older people living with early to moderate dementia by providing meaningful, sociable and regular days out in an intimate home setting.
The Filo Project supports individuals who are socially isolated, many experiencing symptoms associated with moderate dementia. Each day is provided by a host, and is situated in the welcoming environment of the host's own home. Transport and lunch are provided. Each day and group differs, catering to the capacities, preferences and needs of its group members.
Within the gentle and supportive environment of the Filo Project, time and again clients gain confidence becoming revitalised in the process. At a stage of life where many older people find themselves often excluded The Filo Project facilitates a regular day (or more) a week when people can gently come together with a 'day out with friends' atmosphere.
The Filo Project offers recurring and regular respite for carers.
To ensure we employ only the most suitable and like-minded people all hosts are carefully selected, referenced and subject to an enhanced DBS clearance. Hosts receive training in dementia, Emergency First Aid, Moving and Handling and Food Hygiene.
