Meaningful activity service

In University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, a new service providing meaningful activities is changing the course of how they care for people with dementia as well as reducing costs, both human and financial, and reducing length of stay in hospital. 

Key facts:

Members of the trust board, Leicester Hospitals Charity Committee and the Alzheimers Society have been overwhelmingly supportive of this initiative following initial outcomes. Furthermore, a recent Care Quality Commission visit in 2014, highlighted the meaningful activity service in their report as an area of good practice.
