“The two aquariums we have here give us two different outcomes. The one in the dementia unit is excellent for the resident’s interaction with the staff and visitors. They also have a sense of ownership as they help to feed the fish. Having the aquarium here has seen a reduction in challenging behavior. It is a soothing, calm and colourful addition to the unit.

The aquarium in the hospital is a specific feature of the entrance area where visitors can see we have an environment for children as well as patients. Everybody appears to enjoy the calming ambience that the fish provide”
