Chloe Smith, Member of Parliament for Norwich North will on Friday 9th September be taking part in the official opening of a new sensory garden designed to support people with dementia.
The garden, which will be open to the public, as well as residents of Northgate House, has been designed to provide dementia sufferers and those with a range of different therapeutic needs a place that is relaxing whilst engaging with all of the five senses.
Following a change of management at Northgate House in March, opportunities have been sought by the new management to encourage Northgate residents to engage with the local community; the opening of the sensory garden is designed to encourage a shared space and social engagement.
Chloe comments: “I’m looking forward to taking part in the opening of Northgate House’s new sensory garden. I am looking forward to seeing how the garden will support residents and encourage social interaction with the local community.”
