Beetle Bank Social Farm
Beetlebank Social Farm is a mixed farm which uses traditional farming practices to provide meaningful activity and support to people living with dementia in the York and surrounding areas. <br />
Day services in the York area for people living with dementia are largely delivered from indoor spaces, so people living with dementia who prefer outdoor spaces to spend their day are limited to gardening groups and other arbitrary options. This is particularly true for men who have difficulty accessing meaningful activities, which can also impact on the respite needs of any carer involved. We believe that just as every person living with dementia is an individual, we need a spectrum of services to cater for individual preferences.
