The Filo Project is an award winning not-for-profit social enterprise offering high quality small group day care for older people who are socially isolated and are experiencing symptoms associated with early to moderate dementia.
Transport is included in the service meaning we can support even the most geographically isolated. The intimate environment is key, no client is overwhelmed by a large group. We liken the day with the Filo Project to spending a ‘day with friends’.
If you or someone you care about has had a stroke, our Somerset based service can provide practical advice, essential information and emotional support. The service is free to people of any age recovering from stroke, their carers and family members. Either you or your carer, health or social care workers or GP can refer you to the service. We visit people wherever they may be such as their own home, hospitals or care homes.
