"Understanding of dementia"

About: Northern General Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

My mother recently spent 6 weeks in northern general hospital on Breasley 7 receiving end of life care. The staff were kind and caring towards their patients and the relatives. The treatment and understanding of dementia patients was far better than other wards where my mother has been in the past. The level of staffing was high and I found doctors and nurses approachable. It was much easier on this ward to get information about my mother’s condition and treatment than other wards I have experienced.
