Good Practice Case Study. Improving the experience for dementia - Taunton and Somerset Foundation Trust
This piece describes the work that Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust carried out at Musgrove Hospital as part of the Enhancing the Healing Environment (EHE) programme.
The key changes undertaken at Taunton and Somerset were redesign of the nurse’s station, use of colour, signage and orientation, and introduction of a quiet room. The aim of this was to change the ward environment so that it was designed specifically for people with dementia.
