Illustrated medical dictionary (pilot)

3rd October Stepping Hill Hospital.
Today we started a new pilot project, with older people at Stepping Hill Hospital, with the working title of ‘illustrated medical dictionary’ after a late start, (due to conditions on the ward) we pitched into a creative, productive, high spirited workshop. Alice, Gladys and Violet, produced a stream of reminiscence and observation about life in hospital. From this material we selected short statements to be handwritten and formed into badges.

A truly delightful session. It opened up lots of new themes, themes such as doctors, medicines, home remedies, old fashioned medication and the attitude of survival…
