More About The Organisation

About Us

Alive! is a new charity dedicated to connecting with people now living in residential care. We currently work with over 100 homes in Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire.

These include independents, small chains and large companies such as Four Seasons, Shaw Healthcare, Mimosa, Avery, Leonard Cheshire Homes and BUPA. We are also proud to work with the Milestones Trust and with St Monica Trust at their sites at Cote Lane, Westbury Fields and Sandford Station.

We conduct interactive activity sessions which help stimulate care home residents on all levels: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

We run regular training courses for care home staff in delivering activity and reminiscence sessions for their residents. These include 'Activity and Reminiscence Therapy' and 'Using Technology to Facilitate Activities'.
