Last week saw the formal opening of the RPH’s Dementia Resource Corridor by our Nursing, Midwifery and AHP Director, Sarah Cullen.
The aim of the corridor is to promote dementia awareness and features a range of resources for staff members and people affected by dementia to learn about the disease and strategies to enable people to live well.
The corridor also features some cognitive stimulation activities and signposting information on local and national services.
The corridor features the dementia pledge tree which was kindly donated by Service Care Solutions and features pledges from staff members demonstrating their commitment to continual improvement.
Additionally, local schools/colleges got behind the project and have developed art pieces designed to stimulate both conversation and reminiscences.
We would like to give a heartfelt thanks to colleagues involved with the project, local students for their creativity and services that provided funding through LTHTR Charitable Funds.
