National Museums Liverpool
A group of free museums and galleries housing varied collections.
National Museums Liverpool comprises eight venues, including some of the most visited museums in England. It recognises that to acknowledge and understand an individual’s personal history and memory is of great value and significance, especially for people living with dementia. House of Memories is a flagship programme, which represents an integral part of the National Museums Liverpool’s social inclusion mission. The museum-led dementia awareness programme has provided more than 12,000 carers including health and social care professionals and families with training and activities to provide person-centred care to support people to live well with dementia.
It promotes the need and value for compassion, respect and dignity in care. Museums are experts at recording and caring for people’s memories and House of Memories is designed to provide knowledge and understanding of how information about a person’s history and life experience can be a valuable tool for positive communication. Activities include an interactive training day, access to a free object loan service and a museum memory app. Your micro donations help House of Memories – National Museums Liverpool’s dementia awareness programme to provide vital support to people living with dementia, their carers, family and friends.
