Support a good cause. Help us raise Awareness!
This is what the local Beverley Life and Bridlington Free Press had to say about the launch of the Dementia Friendly Memory Walk Garden that opened on Thursday 25th April 2019…
New Dementia Friendly Garden opened
Situated near Ward 8 at Castle Hill Hospital our Dementia Friendly Garden space has been designed with a Wizard of Oz theme. Developed with the assistance of many people to give sensory prompts to people who might visit. Enhanced by the presence of an Amy moth, purchased and donated by John Hillaby, it is a striking example of how a largely unused space can be enhanced and given purpose. If you would like us to help you develop a garden then use our contact page to get in touch!
