Thanks to your donations, patients on our Care Of The Elderly Ward can enjoy a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, tea parties and board games.
Activities like these help to make our patients stay more comfortable and have a positive impact on their wellbeing, especially while they are unable to have visitors.
Faith Butt-Lyons, Activity Coordinator, was determined to overcome the challenges faced due to Covid-19 restrictions. No longer able to use the day room as normal, Faith had to adapt and think of new ways to ensure her patients were still able to enjoy activities and socialise during their stay in hospital.
“Patients love our activities – even the staff join in! I now carry out activities in bays, either one to one or in small groups. We have tea parties to celebrate occasions, play board games, do arts and crafts or I will soak their feet. This was all funded by the Charity and it is so lovely to see our patients enjoying themselves – they often tell me they don’t expect to do things like this in hospital! Families love to hear that their relatives have taken part too.”
