The Research Institute for the Care of Older People (RICE): Chat, Make & Move

RICE has been working with the older population for 35 years. Many people experience isolation and confusion after a dementia diagnosis and RICE’s mission is to alleviate distress through offering a range of interventions to both those diagnosed and those who care for someone with dementia.

The Chat, Make and Move pilot sessions funded through this grant will bring people in the locality together at an early stage of memory loss in order to tackle isolation and loss of social confidence.

Dementia can be an extremely lonely journey for all those touched by it, but insight generated so far tells us clearly that there can be positive impact through early intervention, creating opportunities for connection, sharing and meaningful activity.
