My friend has breathing difficulties, dementia and is hard of hearing because he needs his ears syringed. The community matron said that he needed to be reassessed because of his dementia, as it was difficult for her to treat him. How does he obtain care for his ears in the meantime, whilst he is waiting to be reassessed? The matron provides very good care but there is just some confusion about how patients with dementia receive care for other health needs. As a friend I make sure I am present when the nurses visit, so that I can explain everything to them.
