New ‘magic table’ to help patients with dementia

Alice House Hospice provides lots of activities to help manage patient’s conditions as well help them to relax and relieve stress and tension.

Whilst many patients derive much benefit, those suffering from dementia are often very passive and withdrawn. This can be concerning as the negative influences that passiveness has on their physical, mental and emotional well–being is enormous.  Muscles stiffen, boredom and even depression sets in leading to acceleration in the loss of cognitive ability. 

Shocking attack on Hospice shop

Alice House Hospice are saddened to report that their Horden charity shop suffered a devastating fire in October this year resulting in the closure of the shop and the loss of its entire stock.

Initially believed to be the result of an electrical fault, further investigations confirmed that it was in fact burglary and intentional arson.

Hens are making friends

Alice House Hospice introduced their 4 Henpower Hens, Martha, Henny Penny, Paxo and Tufty Belle, in October this year and they have spent the last few weeks making friends with patients at the Hospice.

Each week a Henpower Workshop takes place in Day Care which all the patients are invited to join in with.  The activities have included making fruit banners for the hens and making welcome bunting alongside other ‘hengaging’ activities.

Another new service on its way…

Day services at Alice House Hospice’s Holistic Wellbeing Centre continue to grow as more people start to appreciate the excellent services on offer.   

As a result of this an additional day has recently been added, however requests are still coming in from some people who, because of their complex health problems, find it difficult to access traditional day care places.
