“Our House” - a pioneering project to engage older residents with dementia in the life of their care home is being piloted by Lennox House.
We have joined forces with Innovations in Dementia CIC, a national community interest company that works on positive initiatives with people with dementia and fellow national care home providers MHA, to run the project for two years.

Karen Morrison, head of service design at Care UK says: “We are delighted to be involved in this exciting new project. We are always keen to improve the quality of our care and finding additional ways to support our residents with dementia to be involved in the day to day running and decisions of their home is a very interesting idea.”
