"Memory loss clinic - remembering how good it was"

About: City Hospital campus / Older people's healthcare Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I found the staff excellent, very friendly and amusing. The other patients soon got conversing with each other and joined in all the activities.

When I first came I wondered why we just sat in two rows, but we soon got chatting with each other, which made us think and use words that we had forgotten.

The exercises were very good and made us all move like we hadn’t done for a long time. I have made quite a few friends during the course and had plenty of support from the staff. By talking so much have started remembering words better.

The afternoon sessions were very good and informative. The food has been excellent and can strongly recommend the course to anyone who is hesitant in joining the group.

The Day Services Review is under way. St Francis Day Hospital, Parkside Day Unit, and Broxtowe Day Service will be working more closely together in order to improve access to therapies such as CST.

Once again thank you for your kind comments, they have been shared by the Day Hospital Manager amongst the team at St Francis Day Hospital.
