Our team over at the Juniper Centre got into the Christmas spirit this week by switching on their Christmas lights for staff and patients.

The Juniper Centre, located at Moseley Hall Hospital is our older people’s acute inpatient service. It provides 24-hour specialist care for people predominantly aged 65 and over with acute organic (such as dementia) or functional (such as depression or psychosis) ongoing mental health issues. 

The festive event was kindly supported by our charity, Caring Minds. Caring Minds is here to support the Trust’s Vision of Improving Mental Health Wellbeing by providing funding that will enhance and add value to the service user and staff experience beyond what the NHS is able to provide. This may include equipment, specialised furniture, activities or special events like this one!

Following the lights switch on, a live band played traditional Christmas songs for the crowd that gathered to watch, they were also given free hot drinks and tasty treats.

Located at the entrance of the centre, the tree will certainly light up the faces of those who visit.

Juniper’s staff members work tirelessly to ensure patients have an ever-changing array of activities on offer which are designed to benefit their mental and physical wellbeing. Thank you, Caring Minds, for bringing Christmas to our patients!
