Friends of Alexander Care – Disbanded February 2021

21 Rushy Mead, Lewisham, London, SE4 1JJ

The Friends of Alexander Care supported the work of the home.  Situated within Lewisham, London,  Alexander Care Home is a purpose built 78 bedded care home offering Dementia, Nursing, Residential, Respite and End of Life care. Alexander Care Home also provides specialist care for young people with physical disabilities.

The Friends aimed to improve the quality of life of the residents of the care home by working with staff, residents and relatives.

The Friends of Alexander Care were looking to develop services on the site. We found that this was particularly valued by some residents who through deteriorating health did not have the confidence to come out of their rooms. Alongside this, we supported the care homes’ activities’ coordinators by providing extra pairs of hands during organised activity sessions and outings.
