Currently the plans include:
A designated stroke rehabilitation area, which will enable patients to practice day to day activities such as walking across a bridge or using a ramp, general outdoor activities such as pegging washing on a line, doing some light gardening, navigating uneven flooring, poles and raised kerbs in preparation for the patient being discharged from hospital.
An all-weather lodge which will be accessible all year round for use by patients in small groups who are bed bound, in wheelchairs or walking independently. The lodge will be used for pet, art and music therapies as well as small group work or individual activities which will be arranged throughout the year through a dedicated activities schedule.
Specialist flooring will be installed to reduce the risk of injury from falls, is hard wearing making it adequate for long term usage, permeable and anti-slip certified.
A specially designed pathway will be created to aid orientation of individuals affected by Dementia and help patients navigate to entrance and exit points.
New seating and lighting will enable patients to eat outdoors, socialise with friends and family or simply relax in a safe environment.
Wheelchair and hospital bed accessible flower beds will give patients the opportunity to do some light gardening, should they wish to, or simply enjoy the sensory elements of the planted flora and fauna.
