The Dementia Project will help us fund many new initiatives for our dementia project as shown below.
Providing day rooms on our elderly care wards, Baddow and Braxted, to enhance our patients’ hospital experience. This will provide a space for patients to socialise together, plus meet with their relatives and visitors.
The purchase of ‘Kwick screens’ to enable the easy division of the day room areas for different purposes, helping to create a calm environment and make the area less clinical.
Funding furniture and equipment such as a record player so patients can enjoy music from a bygone era and a projector to screen classic films. This encourages patients to reminisce about their past experiences and creates a familiar environment.
Serene side rooms
'Serene side rooms’, featuring mood lighting, aromatherapy and decorated ceiling tiles to reduce over-stimulation of the senses for people with dementia.
Activity trolleys for the wards which will contain craft items such as card and wool as a tool to benefit people with dementia, providing a distraction from the ward environment.
