70 x Personal and portable CD Players with CD's from all era's allowing patients to be taken back to a time and place where they were relaxed and happy
500 x Blue Toilet seats and 30 x raised toilet seats so that patients can see the contrast of the two colours, therefore allowing them to see the toilet and 3D and reducing stress and confusion for them
16 x Specialist Chairs that will give patients with restricted mobility more comfort and aid with transfer
10 x Training sessions will allow 200 members of staff to receive specialist training on the additional needs of patients, their families and carers
20 x Coloured Mobile Infusion Stands which will allow the patient to recognise the object that they are attached to and reduce the risk of any falls; again giving it a 3D structure
