Arora Dementia Friendly Community An Lanntair

Arora is an An Lanntair initiated project, founded on the core values of community care, creative spirit and shared culture. It is born of a community, shaped and defined by its history, language and unique culture. We proactively promote the Gaelic language and explore the role bilingualism has in relation to dementia. Through Arora, people living with dementia have been involved in exhibitions, creative workshops, art sessions, cultural hand memory (including net mending and spinning workshops), short film screenings, music, personal story recordings, traditional cèilidhs, and creative reminiscence.

Please take a look at our project blog to see the day to day work on the project.

We are a small team, collaborating with many other local organisations to offer a bigger impact for people living with dementia in the Western Isles. Through DEEP, we strive to amplify the voices of people who are more isolated and further down the pathway with dementia. Our initial projects are about personalising and improving surroundings in care centres and empowering people to see self-initiated change in their immediate environment.
