Boost for Dementia Day Room

Boost for Dementia Day Room

A dementia ward at Forth Valley Royal Hospital is £433 richer, thanks to a fundraising and information session in the hospital foyer to celebrate World Alzheimers Day.

The event was organised by Bob Ness, chairman of the Friends of Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Audrey Melrose, Dementia Nurse Consultant and Nicola Doonan, Senior Charge Nurse in Ward B21. Activities included a cake and candy stall, tombola and prize draw.

The money raised will be spent on making a day room more comfortable. The room is used by volunteers who run activity sessions for patients.

The organizers would like to thank everyone who donated items, those who helped on the day and, of course, those who supported the event.
