royal-central-school

Congratulations to Dr Nicola Abraham and a team from the NHS’s Imperial Hospital Trust who, together with a cohort of Central students and alumni, have been recognised with the Outstanding Arts and Creativity in Dementia Care award at the 2019 National Dementia Care Awards. The award was in recognition of the team’s intergenerational project work with the NHS and 4 schools in London.

The intergenerational project, originally conceived by Nurse Consultant (Dementia) Jo James, aims to reduce agitation of patients on wards in order to allow for treatment to be administered, to improve wellbeing through intergenerational collaboration, and to provide moments of joy and discovery for all participants. The interventions designed by Dr Abraham are part of a bigger offer of multi arts projects at Imperial Hospital Trust, however Dr Abraham’s project is unique in that it uses process drama workshops to encourage intergenerational interaction, communication and play.

The National Dementia Care Awards is an annual event organised by The Journal of Dementia Care, a multidisciplinary journal for all professional staff working with people with dementia, in hospitals, nursing and residential care homes, day units and the community.  The awards were created to recognise the very best people in the dementia care sector, whose exceptional work and contributions make better, person-centred care a reality.
