Frank Arrojo, Brent former carer and carer representative of the National Dementia Action Alliance, is encouraging all acute hospitals to put up on display – in all inpatient and outpatient wards – the new Poster that has been launched during Dementia Action Week entitled “What to expect from us during a stay in hospital”. Frank who led this piece of work explained:
“The purpose of the Poster below is to highlight the key deliveries, outputs and/or outcomes patients with dementia and their families and friends should expect during a stay in hospital….

Also, it is hoped the Poster will have a positive impact on all staff members who work in hospital (including senior managers, consultants, doctors and nurses), as well as volunteers…”To read more and download a copy of the Poster click here.
