Hospitals handed £1.3m boost for dementia care
Two hospitals serving the county have been given more than £1.3 million to improve care for patients with dementia.
The Royal United Hospital in Bath has been awarded £555,400, which will be used to refurbish Combe Ward. The new facility will have 26 beds and six side rooms.
Work on the ward has begun and changes include clear signs, sensitive lighting and mirrors. A living area with fireplace and wood effect flooring is intended to help patients and carers feel at ease.
