House of Memories is an award-winning dementia awareness programme led by National Museums Liverpool (NML) in the UK. The original health and social care model, launched in 2012 with funding from the Department of Health, was designed to support carers working in health and social care sectors and ancillary public services to provide person-centred care and promote living well with dementia. The programme was subsequently developed and delivered in different regional settings with a range of national partners and support from statutory health commissioners. More than 11,000 health and social care workers have participated in the programme since 2012. In 2016, NML launched the family carers awareness programme with funding from Department of Health, working in partnership with New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester; Salford Museum and Art Gallery; and the British Museum, London. Designed specifically for family carers and community-based volunteers, the half-day programme uses museum collections and resources to advocate empathic communication with people living with dementia; enable greater understanding within the care community of a person’s history and life experience; empower family carers with information and ideas that they can use on a daily basis; promoting community wellbeing and resilience.
