Janine Valentine, nurse consultant for dementia and elderly care, said: “Having photographs of places that patients recognise and also photographs from the past is a fantastic way to engage with people with dementia.
“We want to make their stay in the hospital as positive as possible and a selection of local photographs that trigger memories and prompt conversation will help the hospital environment alive.”
There are four categories in the competition:
Somerset at work
Somerset in the past – photos of days gone by, even if they were not taken by you
Somerset in pictures – any photos relevant to the area
To enter, send a copy of your photograph, along with a cheque made payable to Yeovil District Hospital to: Janine Valentine, Yeovil Hospital, Higher Kingston, Yeovil Hospital, BA21 4AT.
Entries must be received by Friday, November 29.
