Ashford Place

When we encouraged Ashford Place to help make Brent a dementia–friendly borough, they rose to the challenge.

Aran Homes

Leeds Irish Health and Homes has launched a new home service for people with memory loss. Aran Homes support people to retain their memory to carry out everyday tasks.
