Becoming Dementia Friendly – 05/06/2023

Swallownest Health Centre is proud to have signed up to become Dementia Friendly.

We will be working with Alzheimer’s Society during the coming year and our staff have been trained and will also be participating in General Practice specific dementia awareness sessions.

We will also be carrying out an assessment of how dementia-friendly we are and take steps to improve areas that need attention.

We welcome any feedback about how we are doing from patients, families and carers.

Included here are some useful contacts and links for support or advice if you are living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia.
