At Groundwater’s secure dementia unit, residents have their own special Memory Boxes.
Our Lifestyle Team fills these boxes with carefully chosen items and activities based on what each resident finds interesting and engaging. The contents of the boxes are added to and changed over time, and residents can open them whenever they like.
Resident Joy has always loved flowers and she was delighted to open her Memory Box and
find it filled with a variety of different flowers that she could arrange and display in her room.
She becomes absorbed in this calming activity and is very proud of the arrangements she makes.
At PresCare Maryborough, we love supporting residents living with dementia to find engaging and calming activities they enjoy.
