A silent disco for dementia patients and their families at a north-east hospital has been hailed a success.
The event took place at Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin and saw eight patients and their families take part.
Those involved in the disco, where people dance to music they are listening to on headphones, were asked to create the playlist.
Sally Thomson, director of Grampian Hospital Arts Trust which commissioned the event as part of its Resonate, Disseminate project, said: “We’re really pleased with how the silent disco went and the feedback from everyone has been really positive.
“We are already looking at how we can build on that success in other areas of NHS Grampian.”
Helen Balmer, senior charge nurse at the Acute Care for the Elderly Unit at Dr Gray’s Hospital, added: “It’s been a great way of getting patients, families and staff together to have a lot of fun.
“Getting to see so many people enjoying themselves was really special – for patients and also their families and friends.”
