Dementia-friendly activities for Ward 17

The Trust Charity has donated a trolley full of activities for our dementia patients on Ward 17 at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The trolley items included sensory and fidget toys, colouring books, pencils, hairbrushes, nail care products, games and puzzles.  

Kate Hudson, Lead Dementia Nurse Specialist explained: “These extra activities will provide our patients on Ward 17 with a new and exciting resource. They will also support the excellent work the Ward 17 team is doing to involve patients in activities daily. By participating in activities, patients feel less distressed, maintain their sense of time and often sleep and rest better."

Margarita Vidiella, Head of Charity added: “The patients are at the centre of everything we do, and our charity is committed to supporting the Trust's services. We are only able to make these differences for the patients and staff because of the generosity of our supporters.”
