About this cause
"Consider Dementia" is part of Poole Hospital Charity. We aim to raise money and awareness in order to make a positive change to our patients living with dementia. With over 13,000 people living with dementia in Dorset, we want to focus on making our hospital become more dementia-friendly. Hospital can often be an intimidating environment for those with dementia and their carers. So we want to make changes to create a less disorientating space, improve people’s understanding of dementia and purchasing more therapies for our patients.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The items will aid patients, their friends and family by improving communication, stress-levels and their immediate environment. In turn patients will be less intimidated, more comfortable, calmer and more accepting of staff and volunteers. This will create a more pleasant environment for all staff and patients in the hospital, and provide a better experience for friends and family visiting.
