We have a full range of dementia resources available to DCHS staff to borrow for patients and relatives/carers.
These resources are designed to promote therapeutic engagement with patients with varying degrees of cognitive impairment.
Using activity as a form of therapy can enable staff, patients, their carers and family to feel more involved and can help to alleviate distress caused by unfamiliarity.
These resources have been carefully selected to encourage staff and carers to actively engage with patients and relatives, trigger treasured memories and encourage reminiscence.
If you wish to access any of the activities, simply contact us and we will discuss options with you.
