Helping older people living with Dementia get outdoors and connect with nature

ENLIVEN is a 3-year project based at the University of Exeter, with an expert team from Brunel, Hertfordshire, Manchester Metropolitan and Bradford Universities, Innovations in Dementia and The Sensory Trust.

ENLIVEN will be working with small businesses to make the wellbeing benefits of outdoor activity more accessible to older people with cognitive impairment, for example memory problems due to dementia or a stroke. Our focus is to enable people to keep active, independent and socially-connected through increased outdoor activity.

“We know that a lot of people, particularly older people, and people with dementia or cognitive impairment and their families, can find it difficult to get out and about, to places that they love. It’s really important for people to enjoy being outdoors and benefit from the experience.

The ENLIVEN project is all about making this easier for older people with dementia or cognitive impairment and their families. We want to work with people who manage outdoor spaces and look after outdoor spaces to see how we can make those spaces more accessible for people, and that’s what this project is all about.”
