This Sensory Garden was the inspiration of Daphne Sharp whose brother Robbie had used the NHS Foundation Trust’s services at St Georges Hospital, Stafford, but sadly died of Alzheimer’s at the age of 61.
Daphne knew nothing then about this form of dementia. Caring for her brother at home and then visiting him in hospital, led to her gradually becoming knowledgeable about Alzheimer’s. She became project leader and chief fund raiser for creating this Sensory Garden and then a Sensory Room at St George’s Hospital for the benefit of dementia patients. Her fundraising skills have paid off in a beautiful space with water features, gazebos and seating areas.

The
Sensory Room
has been designed to be a place where a person can be in a pleasant environment where the distractions of the outside world are completely absent. It presents attention grabbing moving colours, bright lights, soft feel shapes and patterns designed to stimulate.
