Young and old come together to help dispel dementia myths

Reported in the Eastern Daily Press (16 August 2017):  Schoolchildren visited residents at a care home as part of an inter-generational project aimed at dispelling the myths and stigma associated with dementia.

A class of 30 eight and nine-year-olds from St Peter and St Paul Primary School visited Hartismere Place care home in Eye, near Diss, as part of the Archie Project – an initiative set-up by the charity Reminiscence Learning and introduced by Care UK at the home.

The pupils took time throughout the afternoon to work with residents on arts and crafts projects and talk about what life had been like when those living at the care home were at school.

The afternoon concluded with the children performing an entertaining rap, which put a smile on everyone’s faces.

The Archie Project is a dementia awareness programme linking schools and care homes together.
