Dementia garden opens to patients
A dementia garden has opened to patients at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
Bournemouth Hospital Charity recently saw the completion of their new dementia garden.
This transformation has seen of one of the hospital’s courtyard areas blossom into a space designed for patients with dementia to enjoy.
Liverpool Victoria made one of the largest donations to the petal garden. Jonathan Sells sculpted a wooden sculpture resembling the company’s heart logo, which sits in one corner of the garden.
Janine Pattison Studios created the garden designs with the dementia patients in mind. Through their research and work, the garden will be a positive place for patients.
The team donated their time and the plants to make this project come alive. We can’t wait to see it grow!
Debbie Anderson, the Head of Fundraising at Bournemouth Hospital Charity, had this to say,
“It is really great to see the garden come together after all of the wonderful fundraising efforts of our supporters. We’d like to thank them for all of their hard work, Janine Pattison Studios for all their time spent bringing the garden to life, and to Liverpool Victoria for their large donation to the project.”
