Face to face with community nursing

Why not start a conversation this Dementia Action Week? Alzheimer’s Society’s research shows that many people are worried about ‘saying the wrong thing’ to people living with dementia. And despite almost all of us knowing someone affected, two-thirds of people living with dementia report feeling isolated and lonely. A child sees the person for who they are - watch what happens when kids interview people with dementia. https://youtu.be/YYnI_L3mH00

In their own words: Health Visitors
“Working with families in the inner city is varied and challenging. I try to empower parents to provide the best possible start in life for their children. It’s a great feeling to work together with parents and see a real improvement in their child’s health and wellbeing.
With some families I have built a long-term, close relationship and I feel privileged to see children and families in their own home. Often parents are more relaxed at home and feel able to talk more openly about any worries.

Q&A: Sophie Slade, adults’ speech and language therapist
What does your role involve?
We see adults with neurological conditions in their own homes. This means they have damage to the brain, spinal column or nerves, caused by an illness or injury. The speech and language therapists working in the Specialist Community Neurology team see people with difficulties they have as a result of their neurological condition. For example, they may have difficulties with producing clear speech or understanding and using language, or they may have problems with swallowing.
Happy Nurses' Day to our wonderful Out Of Hours Team!
