New Bluebell room opens thanks to the generous donations from volunteers

A new specially adapted dementia friendly room at King’s Mill Hospital’s Emergency Department, has opened thanks to the generous donations raised by King’s Mill Hospital Volunteers and Ashmere Homes.

The dementia friendly room provides a safe and secure environment for patients with particular needs who otherwise would find the busy Emergency Department a challenge. This helps relieve any stress, pain and anxiety and assists communication and memory.

The room has been named the Bluebell Room and was officially opened by Chair of Sherwood Forest Hospitals, John MacDonald and Deputy Sister, Natalie Bradbury on Tuesday 19 December.

Natalie said: “The £7,500 donation has helped to design a calming and less clinical environment for patients with dementia or mental health problems. The room will help to engage and stimulate patients while receiving care and we are really thankful for the generous donations that have made this possible.”

As part of the room design the Trust has also received kind donations from Ashmere Homes who have provided a coffee table and two winged back chairs.
