Caring for adults with learning disabilities and mental health challenges.
Covid-19 has been a difficult time for those cared for on the Hollies Ward at the Cavell Centre in Peterborough. Many of the adults on the ward have found themselves distressed by their nurses and doctors suddenly wearing full body protective equipment and their families not being able to visit in person. We have been able to help by providing new fun games for patients and staff to use on the ward - bringing laughter and enjoyment along the way. To name a few of these items: giant noughts and crosses, 4 in a row, a table tennis table, some speakers to play music and the High School Musical Box Set.
Clinical Nurse Specialist Kailash Ludhor said: “This has been a great initiative from Head to Toe charity and I was pleased that we were able to use the funds to improve patient engagement and experience on the unit.”
One patient on the ward said: "My favourite thing is the blue tooth speaker because I like listening to music and on the plus side it changes colour while playing."
