A specialised unit has opened for elderly residents in Hounslow suffering from dementia at Cloisters Care Home, in Bath Road.
The service, complete with sensory room, memory boxes and reminiscence boards, will be officially launched on Wednesday by Hounslow Mayor Genevieve Hibbs.
One of its main features is a sensory room, equipped with light boxes, special effects projectors, a mirror ball, fibre optic tubes and soothing music.
Complementary therapies will also be offered within the room, which has been designed to calm and relax restless residents.
Other features include memory boxes outside all residents' rooms, 3D signs, rummage boxes with reminders of everyday life, and reminiscence boards where residents are able to display mementoes from their lives.
Work is also underway to create an enclosed garden with raised borders and safe walkways, where residents will be able to relax and try their hand at a spot of gardening.
Care home manager Friday Eborieme, who has spent more than 20 years helping those with dementia, said there was a genuine need for more patient-centred services for such people both nationally and locally.
"Our aim is to enable those with dementia to live as normal and independent a life as possible here at Cloisters," she added.
