Our donation provides stress-relief to dementia patients
A Merseyside charity that provides a range of services to support people with dementia, older people and people with learning disabilities, has received £500 from us for new therapy dolls and pets.
Maghull-based Parkhaven Trust provides nursing and residential care at The Beeches where its residents and clients get the most out of life in a comfortable, safe and secure environment.
The donation from us will enable the charity to purchase a selection of therapy dolls that will be given to residents as a way to put responsibility, caring and structure back into the lives of those affected with dementia.
Chief executive of Parkhaven Trust, Kim Crowe, says the therapy dolls offer patients multiple benefits such as relaxation and stress reduction amongst other things:
“We are delighted to have been given the donation from the team at Redrow. The dolls and pets help our clients hugely and can often bring about a sense of calm and peace. They are a really valuable resource.”
Sian Pitt, sales director at our Lancashire division said: “Redrow’s engagement with the Trust started in 2017 when we bought the land for our Dover Meadows development from them. It’s great that we can now help them to support their residents and provide these hugely beneficial dolls.”
Dover Meadows, located on Green Lane, Maghull, features a great mix of three and four-bedroom homes.
With just two homes left on the first phase, and a new wave of homes just released, the ‘best of both worlds’ development offers great commuter connections to Liverpool and Manchester, and yet borders beautiful countryside.
