Alive is the UK’s leading charity enriching the lives of older people in care and training their carers.
We provide fun and engaging activity sessions in care homes
which include music, song, poetry and dance, exploring people’s life stories
using iPads, sharing memories with objects from the
past, art and film-making with local school children, multi-sensory work for
people living with advanced dementia and, above all, giving older people
purpose and meaning, as well as the chance to have some fun.
We're different to other activity providers because we enable older people to shape the content and direction of Alive! sessions, which include the use of new technology, guided reminiscence, creative, energising and physical activities.
We entertain but we are more than entertainers. We engage older people in meaningful ways using a variety of tools and techniques tried and tested over the last 10 years.
