The effects of stroke and dementia are profound. The impact can be physical; psychological; financial and/or social. These effects often extend beyond the individual to include family, friends and the
wider community. Due to these issues patients affected by stroke and
dementia may require inpatient hospital care. This can be a frightening,
disorientating and upsetting experience for all.
In an attempt to support individuals affected by stroke and dementia during their hospital stay, staff are raising funds to support the creation of a ‘Stroke Therapy and Dementia Sensory Garden’. The garden will offer people affected by stroke and dementia the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities including pet, gardening and music therapies as well as a beautiful open space away from the clinical area.
