Dementia friendly activity room/retreat

Organisation : NHS Lothian, Ward 14, St Johns Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 2,000

To renovate day room within ward 14 (Orthopaedic Rehab) to a more dementia friendly / cognitive impairment environment.

The aim is to have a calm area where staff can take patients away from the acute areas and carry out activities with these patients such as reminisence activities, physical activities (to aid their rehabilitation).

We also plan to use this area to carry out simple assessments such as making a cup of tea, in order to facilitate patients return home.
