Dementia: Creating A Quiet Environment

After a hectic weekend it is important that we try to quieten things down a little.  Maureen needs to get as much rest as she needs.  This means we are discouraging visits from family members and seeking to keep contact to the bare minimum with the landline disconnected.  I’m hoping that this approach will be understood by family and friends alike.

It has now been confirmed that a Specialist Doctor will be visiting on Wednesday afternoon to continue the assessment of Maureen’s presentation.  I have also been assured that support from the Home Treatment team is only ever a phone call away.  It is commendable the lengths that NAVIGO, our Mental Health Service, go to help those with dementia to be able to remain in their own homes.
