Sensory Garden Project
SENSORY GARDEN - AN EXCITING NEW PROJECT
Very early in 2018, we will see the construction of a new Sensory Garden taking shape in the grounds of the hospital. The garden will help in the rehabilitation and recuperation of patients in the hospital and can be used by the Day Centre patients and those in the Community who would benefit from the enhanced facilities.
The new garden will provide space to walk and sit amongst scented, textural and edible plants and by having raised beds at different heights the planting beds can be easily accessed by those in wheelchairs or who use sticks or crutches. There will be a pergola walkway covered in scented climbing plants.
The garden will be dementia friendly, all on one level and can be used by Care-givers who need some quiet respite.
A covered open sided pavilion will give a shaded seating area and a multipurpose activity space for patients to use with their visitors.
The local community has very generously donated funds to support the League of Friends in its efforts to enable the project to go ahead for which we are immensely grateful.
