Dementia: Rapid Response

Maureen is feeling out of sorts this morning: concerned about the impact of her fall and feeling dizzy.  Within ten minutes of contacting Clee Medical Centre appointments have been made for later in the day.  I’m hoping I’ll be able to get her there this time and there is no repeat of Friday when Maureen went to ground rather than attend a medical appointment.

When we ran off to the seaside together 16 years ago we had no idea of the quality of services here.  I have recounted on several occasions the quality of support I get as a carer and Maureen positive experiences from all quarters.  Cleethorpes may be out of the way and relatives are a long way off but there is a lot to be said for living in this area.  It would be foolish of us to consider moving from an area which looks after us so well.
