Dementia Support on Ward
For anyone needing a stay in hospital, this can be a worrying time. If you are someone living with dementia this can also be confusing and disorientating. Our services aim to provide some comfort and structure to the experience, supporting those that need it in a way that makes sense to them.
For those patients with mild to moderate dementia our volunteers offer dedicated support and Cognitive Stimulation Therapy programmes throughout a hospital stay which can include reminiscence activity or providing company and reassurance when a patient needs to attend a clinic or X-ray away from the ward.
