Top floor staff theme areas for the benefit of residents.
Staff on top floor have recognised that more residents are having dementia issues alongside their medical needs so they have used their initiative to create themed areas to assist these residents.
One of the areas has a railway theme. There is a bench where residents can sit with a luggage rack over them to simulate a carriage of old. There are ticket with various destinations and time tables displayed to add to memories of places visited. A wall train display of a non British train where it may arouse the memories of British trains being unlike this and stimulate thoughts of the country where it would have run.
Another area is set out as a traditional old fashioned lounge complete with traditional arm chair where residents can look and remember or indeed just sit and ponder.
Thanks to Rhian and her crew for this thoughtful memory lane.
