Here at Epsom and St Helier Hospitals Charity we work closely with staff and patients to find out which areas our hospitals and community services need a helping hand with – those extras which go towards delivering exceptional care.
Quizzes, Arts and Crafts for the Older Person
The older we become, the more important it is for our minds to remain active, just as we need to maintain physical fitness and strength in older age. Keeping patients mentally stimulated plays a vital role in their mental wellbeing. Throughout our lives, our brain is responsible for keeping us happy, and a healthy mind plays an important role to enable us to live independently.
To keep brain activity functioning at its best, the mind needs to be challenged every day. With fun games, tasks and activities, exercising the mind can be enjoyed anywhere and by anyone.
Whether it’s Sudoku, crosswords, chess, jigsaws, colouring, or playing cards, with your support we can aid the recovery of our older patients by caring for their mental health.
We currently have an Amazon Wish List for Activity Boxes to aid our COVID-19 Rehabilitation patients at NHS Seacole Centre, Headley Court.
