Hospitals in Solihull
Staff from Solihull Hospital had to rely on charm and initiative to raise money for dementia and delirium patients - in a challenge dubbed ‘I want to go home’.
Seven teams of four staff from the hospital were dropped off at a secret location miles from home without any money – and with the sole instruction of getting back to the hospital in the quickest time.
The teams used tactics such as flagging down motorists and convincing train drivers to take pity.
Eventual winners Ward 19 persuaded a car showroom to drive them back all the way back to Solihull from Kidderminster.
The ‘I want to go home’ event raised more than £1,000 to support dementia and delirium patients at the Solihull site.
Senior nurse for dementia at Solihull Hospital, Phil Hall, who heads up the award-winning Dementia and Delirium Outreach Team at the hospital, was delighted at the response to the fundraising event.
“It has been a really successful event and all the teams really got into the spirit of it to raise a fantastic amount which will go towards improving care for patients with dementia and delirium at Solihull Hospital,” he said.
“I would like to thank all those who took part and gave up their free time, as well as those who donated money and indeed helped our teams during the day.”
The Dementia and Delirium Outreach Team is always on the lookout for volunteers who can offer time to spend assisting elderly and frail patients on wards, encouraging eating and drinking, helping with mobilisation and orientation and supporting activities such as playing card games or doing jigsaws.
