The Filo Project offers high quality day care for small groups of older people. Our service supports individuals who are socially isolated, many experiencing symptoms associated with moderate dementia, including memory loss. Each day is provided by a host, and is situated in the intimate setting of the host’s own home.
Within the supportive environment of the Filo Project, time and again clients gain confidence becoming revitalised in the process. At a stage of life where many older people find themselves often excluded The Filo Project provides a time and space where clients can engage in valued and valuable social roles and connectedness. Friends are made, laughter exchanged and experiences shared.
A day with The Filo Project lasts more than just a day.
We currently cover areas in and around; Exeter, Exmouth, Topsham, Honiton, Bridport, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, Seaton, Axminster, Torbay, Crediton, South Molton, Bideford, Barnstaple and Torrington. Transport is provided as part of the service meaning we can support even the most rurally located.
We work in partnership with Devon County Council and have been approved to be on their Select Supplier List for Day Services.
To ensure we employ only the most suitable and like-minded people all hosts are carefully selected and referenced. They are also subject to enhanced DBS clearance as well as receiving training in dementia, Emergency First Aid, Manual Handling and Food Hygiene.
