We’re excited to have launched a new, dementia-friendly, House of Memories website.
House of Memories is National Museums Liverpool’s award-winning dementia awareness programme which offers training, access to resources, and museum-based activities to enable carers to provide person-centred care for people living with dementia.
As National Museums Liverpool’s flagship social impact project, House of Memories is an important part of making us an inclusive museums service.
The House of Memories team is celebrating St Patrick’s Day with the release of a special new theme featuring Irish related objects for the My House of Memories app.
Liverpool is a vibrant multi-cultural city with unique links to Ireland and a strong Irish community – in the early 19th Century more than 35,000 Irish emigrants settled in the city.
The second ‘National Museums and Wellbeing Week’ is taking place from 6 – 12 March.
The National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing is coordinating the week and describes it as “an opportunity for museums to showcase their health and wellbeing offer and raise awareness of this valuable area of work.”
