Artwork has been unveiled at a Windsor care home in order to help people with dementia connect with their past.

The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway (Con, Bisham and Cookham), officially unveiled the artwork at Sandown Park Care Home on Thursday.

Three artists were commissioned by Marie Leonard, of Art on the Street, on behalf of the Dementia Friendly Environments Project, funded by the Royal Borough as part of a £847,000 project.

Marie said: "It's been an absolute joy to work with Sandown Park and I have met some wonderful residents.

"From a personal point of view it has been a fulfilling and worthwhile project which has really benefitted the resident and their families."

The 'reminiscence' artwork has been painted in the common areas of the Vale Road care home where a sensory garden will be created later this month.

Shahnaaz Mohamad, manager of Sandown Park Care Home, said: "It has improved the residents' lives by helping them to be calmer and it's a nice environment for care staff to work in."
