Activities and afternoon tea at the Community Hospital

Patients at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust's Community Hospital can now benefit from a home-from-home environment filled with activities and the occasional afternoon tea!

Maggie Boldan was recently appointed as Activities Co-ordinator at the Community Hospital and in the last few months, has transformed the communal area of the building into a social, home-from-home environment for patients in their care.

The Community Hospital, located on the Rotherham Hospital site, is a step-down facility for patients requiring rehab and support in preparation for going home. On average, patients stay at the facility for up to a few weeks. The on-going improvements to the communal room incorporate activities such as conversation boxes, an activity table, a ‘cosy corner’ complete with a television and decorative fireplace donated by construction team, Kier and a soon to be ‘gardening corner’.

With an overall aim to prevent social isolation, Maggie is also hosting a monthly tea party for patients and their families to come together and enjoy tea, cakes and conversation. This provides a sense of occasion for the patients and encourages them to come out of their rooms and socialise with each other, their family and colleagues at the Trust.

The Community Hospital team would like to extend a special thank you to all those who have donated cakes and items for conversation boxes.
