Lammerlaw Ward Reminiscence Room

Organisation : NHS Lothian, Lammerlaw Ward, Herdmanflat Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 3,000

The purpose of the project is to create a reminiscence room on Lammerlaw Ward to provide patients staying on the long stay mental health ward with a place to engage with reminiscence and past memories.

The furniture and items in the room would be from 1950s and 1960s and would hold meaning for the patients currently on the ward. The room would be used for individual and group sessions and would encourage conversation and patients drawing on their long term memory.
