"Excellent support for my parents"

About: Tolworth Hospital / Memory clinic

(as a carer),

Both my parents with dementia had referrals to Dr Davidson who was very supportive and informative. Her calm and understanding manner was very reassuring to me and my parents under difficult circumstances.

My dad was later transferred into the care of Neil, the nurse. He made my dad feel at ease and listened to, which was very important to him. The care from all the staff has been excellent.

Their support has been invaluable to me as carer for my parents, it is a shame that dad has now had to be transferred to his GP as he is stable. In my experience GP's struggle to support dementia patients.
