case studies > Homerton Hospital Dementia Lead Joins Forces with Giving World

Homerton Patient

Dementia Lead Nurse Emma Higgins recently heard about the work Giving World does, so she decided to contact us to see if we could help her patients at the Homerton Hospital Elderly Care Unit.

The unit offers health care to frail older adults admitted with physical conditions, many of whom also have dementia.

Emma asked Giving World to provide the unit with clothing and books because "Some of our patients have been living alone and have been brought to hospital with no change of clothes. The donated clothing has enabled patients to change during the day, where able, and to wear clothing to group activities run on the ward".

Many of the elderly patients have suffered isolation and neglect. Having proper clothing allows them to feel comfortable and at home, bringing into play routine and normality. The ward staff encourage patients to eat meals together so having the new clothing makes them feel dignified enough to join in.

Giving World also supplied a large range of books that the unit has used to set up a book club. Reading the books together, and with family and carers, promotes interaction between patients who have often been isolated from their peer groups and their communities.

Emma added "It has been heartening to see patients up and moving about. It promotes a sense of normality and supports the rehabilitation process. This has made a real difference to our patients".
