Social Impact Report 2016

Background

In 2016, 84% of products were sold to the healthcare industry which include NHS and care homes, and 16% to the friends and family of people living with dementia and cared for at home. In February 2017 Active Minds conducted a survey of its clients to establish the social impacts of the products. The survey was completed by 110 customers.

Impact

Active Minds has been developing specialist activity products for people living with dementia for over 7 years. The products have become important resources for professional and families carers alike.

While there are significant benefits to keeping active and engage, this becomes more of a challenge for people living with cognitive, dexterity and visual complications.

In 2016, Active Minds helped to improve the quality of life and well-being for over 52,000 people across the world living with dementia.
