Forget Me Not Dementia Campaign
People with dementia can find new surroundings daunting, so we launched our Forget-Me-Not dementia appeal as an initiative to support them and make their stay in hospital more comfortable.
We created a 100-metre long memory walk, featuring iconic local and national images to help patients reminisce and start a conversation. We also transformed wards, purchased reminiscence machines, calm carts, and pay for interactive sessions to improve our patients' wellbeing.
The Forget-Me-Not Dementia appeal was launched in March 2014 to raise £25,000 and to date have raised over £100,000.
Every three minutes, one person in the UK develops dementia. We need your help to continue enhancing the care patients recieve.
