A specially designed, dementia friendly room on Ward G4
A day room designed to give patients with dementia a calm and homely space in which to relax was opened on Ward G4.
The room was funded with a £5,000 grant, which was awarded by the St Edmunds Trust in support of the hospital’s Forget-Me-Not Dementia Campaign.
Ward G4 cares for a high number of patients with dementia, but the room will also be of benefit to other patients admitted to the ward.
As part of the project, new furnishing, curtains and works of art were funded to create a familiar, homely and non-clinical area.
The room also includes a range of reminiscence materials, also funded by the campaign, to encourage patients to talk about their memories.
