It is great for everybody to get outdoors once in a while. But that is not so easy if you are living with dementia living either in community, or in a care home.
The Parks Trust in Milton Keynes and The Open University are working together to evaluate a new initiative - 5 Ways Cafes event including walking outings in the beautiful Manor Park in Great Linford, Milton Keynes for people with dementia, their families and carers.
This project is trying to understand what works to keep people with dementia engaging with the walks and outdoor environments. We know that sustained benefits come from regular engagement with activities but this is challenging at many levels for people living with dementia and their families and carers. The www.keepmewalking.info website will report regularly on progress.
