DEMENTIA specialists are putting themselves forward to be quizzed by patients and their families.
The Governors of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Rotherham Hospital have announced a new series of Community Health Meetings, which will be the opportunity for members of the trust and public to find out about a range of different health topics from clinicians at the trust.
The first meeting, on February 4, will see our dementia care lead nurse, Maria Palmer, joined by Liz Hopkinson, service manager from the Rotherham Alzheimer's Society and deputy chairman for the local Dementia Action Alliance for Rotherham to speak about the impact of Dementia and the developments the trust is undertaking in its care and services.
Maria said: “The event is to support people who are living with dementia and their carers and is an opportunity to see how we are working together locally through the Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance to support people.”
The meeting will include a series of presentations followed by time for questions.
The Community Health Meeting between 12.30pm and 2.30pm at Rawmarsh People’s Centre, on Dale Road, Rotherham S62 5AL.
