The Bothy

Organisation : Ward 8, St Johns Hospital, NHS Lothian
Grant Amount : £ 5,000

We would like to make an application for £5,000 to enhance dementia care for people with this condition who access the services in our ward. Ward 8 is the rehabilitation area for elderly care and manages people with dementia admitted to the hospital. The ward caters for mixed health care requirements of the elderly but it has been increasingly obvious that people with dementia require more specific care/management and therefore the need to improve facilities to meet such demands.
