RDASH Care Home Liaison Service in Doncaster are working with a local primary school to increase the awareness of the children about people with dementia. The children have been visiting a group of people with dementia, listening to their stories and capturing the rich histories they have to offer. In turn, the older people have enjoyed the children's company. It continues as a project and is beginning to spread to other local schools.
