Dementia: ‘It Don’t Get Much Better’

Image result for NaviGo Dementia  Picture

I have a scheduled appointment with my Admiral Nurse at 10.30 this morning.  This is always a BOGOF deal as Mel used to work for the Home Treatment Team.

My 8.30 am call to our Single Point Of Access will result in contact from a Duty Social Worker whilst I’m meeting Mel.  It don’t get much better than that as I try to accommodate changes in Maureen’s presentation.

Little wonder that NAViGO  received natiional acclaim for their approach to dementia. Sister services within the Local Authority such as Focus Adult Services also deserve similar recognition.
