My grandmother who has dementia had to attend the X ray department as she had a suspected stress fracture in her ankle. The receptionist was able to get her put to the top of the list so that she did not become more distressed. Once they took her in for her X-ray they got us jackets to wear so that we could stay with her. This made the whole process much easier for her and allowed her to stay calm and relaxed.
