Patient social activity fund for patients to The Wolfson Neuro Rehabilitation Centre

The Wolfson is a 26 bed unit which provides intensive rehabilitation to people with neurological impairment, predominantly acquired brain injury.  

People who are admitted to the unit may stay for a number of months, mostly from acute hospital beds but some from home. They work with the rehabilitation team on a daily basis to achieve their goals to return to being as independent as possible. Individuals are often hospitalised for extended periods and experience lifelong changes to their physical and cognitive abilities.

We now have two Activity Coordinators, to assist those admitted to the unit to prepare for integrating back into the community and minimise the 'hospital feel' within The Wolfson. Their role is to complement the work carried out by the therapy and nursing teams by engaging individuals in activities outside of their therapy programme. These include trips out within the local and wider community e.g. visits to coffee shops, walks around the grounds of the hospital, visits to museums, social events on the ward, e.g. movie nights, and trips to support independence, e.g. to the hairdresser/optometrist or even local shops.

These opportunities are unfortunately limited due to lack of funds and volunteers and this is not a service provided by the NHS. Luckily, St George's Hospital Charity believes in enhancing the patient experience, over and above what the NHS can provide.

Keeping patients motivated and happy in long-term rehabilitation makes a crucial  difference to their hospital stay. A donation of as little as £20 can allow a patient to attend and outing, making a massive difference to their experience and recovery.
