Clock this! Dementia friendly clocks installed
Patients with dementia at Milton Keynes Hospital now have special clocks to tell the time thanks to a donation to the Milton Keynes Hospital Charity.
The large yellow clocks are easily recognisable to patients, who sometimes find numbers confusing or difficult to read.
The £500 donation from the Association of Ghanaians in Milton Keynes has enabled the hospital to have clocks visible from every bed on wards where dementia patients stay.
The donation was recommended by a member of hospital staff – healthcare assistant Kofi Twumasi-Adutwum. Kofi, who is also a member of the Association, completed a dementia training course at the hospital, which inspired him to nominate the charity as a beneficiary of the Association’s recent dinner dance.
