Our Logandene dementia-friendly specialist unit project has been awarded Best External Environment award at the 2017 Building Better Healthcare Awards. The BBH Awards celebrate outstanding achievements and innovation in the healthcare sector and recognise the people leading the way in enhancing services across the sector.
This award was presented for an outstanding external space that enhances the overall experience of patients, staff and visitors. The garden at Logandene dementia-friendly specialist unit has been transformed to provide a safe haven for people with dementia.
Logandene is a standalone NHS dementia care assessment and treatment unit. We recently took on the major refurbishment to provide a 16 bed homely environment for people with dementia.
The judges said: “This is a pleasant, controlled scheme which deserves to win. For people of this demographic it is very, very good. It has been very thoughtfully designed, with good sinage and use of colour.”
