Project in focus - Activity Table

simon goodenough.jpgA café style ‘Activity Table’ is where patients suffering from dementia are provided stimulating items in a comfortable and identifiable environment. Each table can be suited to the individual through the inclusion of personal items or those associated with past hobbies and careers. The recognisable surroundings and objects bring a sense of normality to the patient, reducing the risk of confusion and increased anxiety. Find out more 

For clinical staff, NHS Live is an excellent resource to help you. You can find out how people across healthcare are dealing with the same issues and challenges you face. NHS Live encourages sharing practice and learning from each other. Search the NHS Live project directory  to see what you can learn.

Promote the work you are doing and let others know what is going on in your area. We are interested in all your projects however big or small. To tell us about what you are doing add a project to the NHS Live directory.

Events are an important part of the NHS Live programme. Our events run both nationally and regionally.  At NHS Live we try to do things a little differently by steering away from the traditional conference, PowerPoint format. Find out about our events programme and to view upcoming events.

We welcome hearing from you and often work in partnership with local organisations and Trusts to support their events programmes. If you would like to find out how NHS Live may be able to help you with your events email the team.

The NHS Live Award at the national Health and Social Care Awards is only one way in which the NHS Live programme celebrates success and recognises achievement. Many of the projects in the NHS Live Project Directory are winners or runners-up from regional and national award programmes. NHS Live provides a national platform to spread the word about the work you're doing.

NHS Live is a national programme and part of the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. NHS Live is uniquely placed to link clinical staff to the latest tools, research and products.
