Patients living with dementia at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary are set to step back in time thanks to dementia pods using pop-up rooms.
This innovative new venture to help tackle memory loss is being introduced to Standish Ward, which health chiefs say will help stimulate those with dementia.
The pods use pop-up rooms designed to be reminiscent of a bygone era to help reassure patients who suffer from the disease.
They are set up like rooms from past decades and are used to help calm patients in hospitals and care homes by taking them back to more familiar times.
Designed in retro themes they are filled with authentic furniture and memorabilia which is hoped to get patients living with dementia to talk about the memories they still retain.
The pods have been paid for by the charitable funds raised by WWL’s Finance Charity Fund-raising Committee (FCFC).
