Here at Whitehouse Farm we pride ourselves on working to make sure everyone can enjoy the fun of the farm- so last week we hosted one of many days out for those living with dementia, along with their family and carers.
It is often difficult for people living with dementia and their families to get out and experience a day out, so we felt it was important to do something to offer for families with these issues.
The farm visits aim to tackle isolation by providing support, friendship and fun through dementia-friendly activities in a safe and caring environment.
Charity founder Stephen Ward was present and had this to say- "This is why working together with such enthusiastic and understanding local activity providers like Whitehouse Farm is so important to us and the families that need our support. We are delighted to have a new partner in the Whitehouse Farm Centre, the team have been absolutely brilliant. The care and attention they took with each group meant everyone had an opportunity to meet and experience hands-on sessions with some of the Centre’s animals, chat to the keepers and enjoy the day at a pace which suited them."
We're looking forward to making the farm more accessible for everyone to enjoy a day with us, and we look forward to MIND Active's next visit!
