Filo Project up for hero award

The Filo Project, which provides a special form of dementia day care for 350 clients across Devon, Somerset and East Lancashire, is up for an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Hero Award today.  The Dementia Hero Awards on 28 April honour organisations and individuals who do life-changing work in dementia care.  In the Filo Project, “hosts” provide day care in their own homes to small groups of socially isolated older people with mild to moderate dementia.   “We’re delighted the Filo Project is in the finals of the national Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Hero Awards,” said Libby Price, Filo Project co-director.  “Whatever the outcome on the day, this speaks to the commitment, skill and enthusiasm of our hard-working hosts and colleagues, and the tangible impact of a Filo day.”
