The annual Flinders Motoring Heritage fundraiser will continue to support important areas of need at Peninsula Health.

The Mornington Centre Flinders Ward is a specialist unit designed to look after patients living with dementia or experiencing a significant delirium.

Our support will assist in improving the environment and further enhance the garden for patients on the Flinders Ward. This includes modifying the area to provide low stimulation spaces that encourage interaction and emulate a patient’s normal experiences in the community.

The Flinders Motoring Heritage event would like to support the following:

  • Weeding of garden beds and re-planting these with a selection of new plants that provide both colour and interest.

  • Adding garden features such as a bird bath to attract wildlife and garden sculptures.

  • Painting of courtyard walls with a mural or brighter, more inviting colours.

  • Building appropriate older-person friendly seating in garden areas.

  • Obtaining lounge and armchairs in hospital grade fabric for patient lounge area to emulate a more welcoming, homely sitting room experience.
