    Hi Guys,
    Just wanted to share some nice news with you all.

    The hospital I work for is opening a dementia ward in October, led by dementia trained nurses.It has a muted colour scheme to promote peace and tranquility, a secure sensory garden and its own specially trained OT and physio.

    About blooming time .....:)

    Ally, hi
    What good news, I'm sure that this will help throughout the hospital as dementia patients can turn up in any ward with other problems and having experience on site will make a huge difference.
    Kind regards, Jo

    Hi Janice,
    the ward will be based at New Cross Hospital Wolverhampton and any sufferers admitted to the main hospital will be allocated a bed there.

    Its a drop in the ocean but a start at least..Ill keep you posted as to how it goes.

    Ally x

    Marvellous news, Ally – thanks for sharing something so positive. :) Feeding into campaigns and generally giving feedback can be a tad wearing until you see a result like this!:)

    Let’s hope it becomes a ‘beacon’ throughout the country .... look forward to updates!

    Love, Karen, x
