Abington Park mural unveiled for patients with dementia
Patients Betty-Jane and Eileen were on hand to join us as we launched our new 19-metre mural
A 19-metre mural depicting scenes of Northampton's most famous park has been unveiled at Northampton General Hospital as part of a campaign to make the hospital more dementia-friendly.
The mural, depicting scenes of Abington Park, has been created in the hospital's elderly care centre.
It works as a reminiscence trigger to prompt memories in patients, with particular benefits for patients with dementia. It's accompanied by the piped sound of birdsong and the smell of freshly-cut grass.
The mural was funded by donations to the hospital's Do It For Dementia campaign and produced by Rempods.
