15th August 2016 - We would like to thank the seven staff members from School of Health and Related Research from University of Sheffield who had a productive morning on Thursday 11th August working on our new dementia garden area.
Staff created a willow fence, habitat piles, sanded benches and had an enjoyable time with suggestions of further volunteering.
The NEW garden area, All Our Space is a postcode Trust funded dementia garden project that aims to offer an outdoor space for anyone in dementia related communities. The garden area was designed by 3rd Medical students from University of Sheffield in Nov 15 as an investigation and research tool into dementia, access, environment and therapy.
HCF staff member Tony Hancox has been leading the construction with students and volunteers consulting with Lee and Andrew Pearse who are managing the project and concept. The team have been working gradually over the last few months on the paths, planters, seating and are now hopefully working with MA Architecture students from University of Sheffield on a suitable build/summer house/indoor activity space.
The space is to offer a practical project for carers of those with dementia as a respite from caring responsibilities.
The space is also a safe and accessible area on the farm that encourages care homes and care environments for people with varying dementias to be able to engage in a wide variety of activities and simply be outside with nature.
