Hospital Welcomes a Less Clinical Look

Bolton Hospital is working hard to provide dementia patients with a friendlier and more enabling environment that is less clinical with the revamp on their medical ward.

How a less clinical look was created

To make the room look less clinical it was beautifully revamped into the Bluebell café. The room is to be used for quiet time and / or distraction therapy with a programme of activities. This will include music, arts and craft, reminiscence, life story, stretch and movement.

Kerry Lyons Admiral Nurse at Bolton Hospital commented: “Staff and patients alike love the changes – the installation of the room is part of our plans to continue to develop the Hospital in becoming a more Dementia-friendly environment.”

People with dementia can be confused or frightened when coming into a strange environment such as a hospital. By creating an environment that is less clinical in appearance hospital stays can be less stressful.
