Our Support

Our mission is to continue to enrich nursing support provided by the NHS to ensure patients are treated with understanding and dignity in hospital and encouraged to participate in socialising activities in order to maintain their optimum well-being.


The provision of routine and therapeutic activities to  patients who are  ‘ready for transfer’  are awaiting placement in a care home or a complex package of care in their own home. We aim to increase their overall environmental, emotional and physical wellbeing whilst reducing their fears and confusion in a hospital setting.

Mental Health Matters Wales provides Therapeutic Activities situated in St David’s Hospital Cardiff  within the Cardiff and the Vale Health Board we have extensive experience working within in-patient settings providing meaningful person centered  activities such a reminiscing, walks, and bedside 1-2-1 befriending as well as some basic care such as lunch and dinner groups which aims to encourage interaction reducing isolation  increasing both nutritional and fluid intake and some basic care such as our pampering session which involves hair washing and styling by a qualified hairdresser. 

 

Often hospitals are frightening and disorientating for patient’s especially if they have a cognitive impairment, although hospital wards aim is to improve their overall Health and Wellbeing a patient’s often deteriorates rather than improves.
