The garden we are aspiring to make over, services our cancer ward and stroke ward.
The area consists of a courtyard setting accessed on opposite sides by both the cancer ward and stroke ward. The area has existing shrubs and small trees which are being cared for by a couple of volunteers who we have just recruited! We are actively fundraising to try and achieve a garden that is accessible to patients and their families. The groundwork originally consisted of decking which has deteriorated no longer allows safe access.
Our vision is to create a space that is accessible with brick paving to allow unrestricted movement of beds, wheelchairs and intravenous stands. Brick built planters will then invite patients to plant and weed as rehabilitation and stimulate mental well being. A covered area will provide space for a bed for patients who can be safely taken into the private area to feel the sun, air and just feel something more than their hospital room.
Seating areas will accommodate family and friends to either sit with their loved one or for time out of what can be an overwhelming experience of a long hospital stay.
The garden will be planted to provide colour all year round.
