Healing Environments - Dementia Garden at Airedale Hospital

Airedale Hospital in Keighley, West Yorkshire was one of the NHS Forest's pilot sites in 2009 and has planted hundreds of trees. In 2013, the hospital received funding for a dementia ward that included a dementia garden as part of its overall design. Designed and built for under £10,000, it was widely supported within the hospital; the head gardener even did an elearning dementia course to inform his design of the garden.
