The Western Isles Hospital Ward Ceilidh had a Valentines theme today.
We took along resources from Alzheimer Scotland in the shape of village magazines, roses, wedding pictures and our own chocolate cake, heart biscuits, love poetry posters from the Scottish Poetry Library and some red balloons.
Four patients came along to enjoy the session with 9 of the NHS and Arora team supporting them to enjoy the session.
‘it’s nice to get away from the bed for a bit and the company is very nice’
‘Oh I liked the cake’
‘How did you get the heart in the biscuits?’
and the red balloons were very popular for a game across the table at the end.
Kate MacDonald, our new Arts Practitioner from North Uist came along to see what we do and she is looking into the possibility of sharing the sessions across the South Isles.
