Subscription to the ‘Daily Sparkle’ – daily reminiscence and activity newspaper for people with Dementia

Organisation : NHS Lothian
Grant Amount : £ 1,296

Funding is sought to continue procurement of the above title, which has informally been demonstrated to enhance well-being and quality of life for older people with dementia in a complex care in-patient setting. This application is for a grant for a full year’s subscription for our 4 inpatient complex care units (REH, Ferryfield House, Findlay House, Ellen’s Glen House) at a cost of £2592 ((£54 per month x 12 months) x 4 units)  as this would negate the need for future funding requests and the resource can be used year after year, however 6 months would be welcomed also (£1296).
