We recognise that a significant number of patients have dementia and that a stay in hospital can be a particularly stressful time for them and an especially worrying time for their families and carers.

We have introduced many initiatives as part of our work to make our staff more aware of the needs of patients who experience dementia, and of their families and carers. Our staff have been trained to involve carers as much as they can because they are a vital source of information and help in getting to know and understand the patient and can help with communication. Carers are encouraged to visit at any time to work with staff to ensure person-centred care.
