"Dementia awareness"

About: Pilgrim Hospital

Sadly my elderly father hss severe demmentia and needed to have al his remaining infected teeth removed. I have been impresed at al our appointments that virtually all of the staff we encountered were very understanding of the difficulties we face. Yesterday' experience on daycase ward was made as easy as it could be by the wonderful staff of every profesion. It had been agreed at preassessment that it was in everybody's best interest if I stayed all day to support my father and that he would have a side room. This happened which made things much better for Dad and prevented him getting stressed and possibly violent. My thanks to all the staff who treated us so well whilst being highly professional.
