We’re delighted to announce the project we’re working on at Clarence Ward in Liverpool is now award winning! On Friday, staff from the hospital collected an Innovation Award at the Mersey Care NHS Positive Achievement Awards.
4D have worked with Mersey Care and Clarence Ward to develop the immersive space and to research the impact immersive experiences can have on people with dementia and their families.
Like our immersive spaces in education settings, the Clarence Ward space is built around a combination of light, sound and projection.
Practitioners develop immersive experiences for each individual using the space. The aim of the space is to improve well-being, enhance communication and increase participation. We’re also working with the ward so each experience is personalised so relevant images, videos and sounds have been sourced to create bespoke immersive settings. This may also involve the families of those on the ward.
Well done to all those nominated! The full list of winners can be found at the Mersey Care website.
