Staff at Cameron Hospital in Windygates have organised a fundraising ball next month to help build a new dementia garden.
The Cameron Ball, Balbirnie House Hotel, will also help to celebrate the workforce who have come and gone over the years.
Organisers will use the money raised to rejuvenate existing garden space at the hospital and turn it into an area where dementia patients, their relatives and visitors can visit. The new space has been ear-marked to include specialised paving that will reduce the risk of patients falling, separate quiet areas, spaces for pets to visit, and the presence of nostalgic post and telephone boxes to encourage memory-use and reminiscence.
Commenting, Vivienne Davidson, Senior Nurse at Cameron Hospital, said: “The Cameron Ball is being held for two reasons – firstly, to raise money towards enriching the lives and experiences of those who are inpatients at the hospital, and secondly to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of all the staff who have worked on the Cameron Hospital site, both past and present.
“Ultimately, the Cameron Ball looks set to be a fantastic night and I would encourage anyone who would like to play their part in this fundraising effort to make sure they snap up a ticket as soon as possible.”
