"She made it clear that help was available if I need it "

About: Ayrshire & Arran Community Services / Elderly Community Mental Health Service

(as the patient),

We have had support from the psychiatric nurse for my husband’s dementia which has been very helpful. The nurse is called Mary Woods. We were referred to her by Dr Barber. It was very useful to have things explained to me. She made it clear that help was available if I need it and I’m grateful for that. She said of course she would see us again as and when necessary.

I will pass this to the team to share. I hope your husband keeps as well as possible and you continue to get all the help and support you need.
