Innovation in Dementia Day

Innovation in dementia

HUG by LAUGH was delighted to be part of the Innovation in Dementia Day on 23rd October 2023. The event was held at University Hospital Llandough and was hosted by Cardiff and Vale University Health Board Shaping Change and Life Sciences Hub Wales. It was great to have the opportunity to return to the hospital where we carried out the LAUGH EMPOWERED research in 2020 with patients living with dementia and post stroke cognitive impairment.

The HUG by LAUGH team met clinicians and healthcare professionals to demonstrate HUG, explain the academic research behind its development and how HUG can be used in hospital and care settings to soothe and calm patients who are anxious or agitated.
