I'm currently working in Ysbyty'r Seren, a Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board temporary field hospital based in Bridgend. In preparation for this work, I have conducted a comprehensive literature review in relation to older patients in hospital settings, and explored case-studies demonstrating best practice.
Owing to the current Covid-19 pandemic, face-to-face facilitation has not been possible. In the meantime, I have been designing creative arts activities and well-being packs for patients and staff to complete independently.
All resources and instructions are included, together with a creative evaluation tool to measure participant wellbeing pre and post activity.
" Louise's work and creative packs gave participants inspiration, hope, creative sharing and a happy smile amid life's stresses and anxieties".
