Social Impact Report
Active Minds continually measures its social impact to establish the benefits our activity products are having on the lives of those living with dementia. We use this data to continue making improvements to our products and development process.
We all need a healthy amount of sleep and when you are living with dementia, it can be especially difficult to achieve this. Over 40% of people with dementia experience sleep disturbances which can mean waking up during the night numerous times, making it difficult to have an uninterrupted night of sleep. Sleeping well is one of the cornerstones of living a happy and healthy life, so having a poor quality of sleep can take its toll on the rest of the day and can have a cumulative effect over time.
