The impact of the pandemic has stretched far and wide. And that includes for people with dementia and their carers and family members.
Specialist nurse Stephen Nicholson is raising awareness that the same help and support is still out there.
This week marks Dementia Action Week. And Stephen is reminding and informing people about some fantastic organisations we can call on in the area.
The Trust also supports John’s Campaign for the right of people with dementia to be supported by their family carers.
Other initiatives include the All About Me document in hospitals which provides professionals with information to help enhance and support their care.
Stephen said: “As for so many others with health issues and for loved ones, the pandemic has had an impact.
“What I want to stress just how much support is out there.
“I am encouraging people that if they have a loved one with dementia and want more help and support, please contact these fantastic organisations.
“And if you have a loved one receiving care in our organisation, there is also so much we can do to support you.”
