Silk Ward

Silk Ward

Silk ward provides specialist inpatient treatment and assessment for people with dementia.

It is a 15-bed mixed gender unit and includes a sensory garden space with raised beds. The bedrooms have digital photo frames to make the surroundings more homely and dementia friendly. There is also space for occupational therapy activities such as creative writing and reminiscence artwork.

Our carer pledge

‘We welcome carers onto our wards and embrace the vital contribution they make to achieving the best possible outcomes for patients. This is key to our person centred approach.’
