Tree of Wisdom Project, East Grinstead
This project worked with patients of all ages who have dementia. It was an opportunity to connect, discuss memories and build confidence through working with glass. Patients looked at the life cycles and their transformation into objects of delight and beauty. Their resulting work was developed into new garden where patients can relax and recover.
This innovative care unit has created with AIM, a unique for of therapy using mainly dried foods to help dementia patients function better The tactile nature of the food enables often a deep sensory response and assists in helping carers and patients manage.
