Bright Care’s Dementia Champion

By 27/03/2017News

 

Aga from our Perth office has completed the Dementia Champion Programme provided by the University of the West of Scotland. It is in conjunction with the Scottish Government, the NHS, Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish Social Services Council. The programme was devised to provide help and support to friends and families of people who have been diagnosed with dementia. As part of the programme, Perth office is piloting a ‘getting to know me’ form. This form has proved to be extremely useful on admission to hospital. It can speed up diagnosis, reduce stress to the patient and helps to organise the correct care and support on the ward.
