New book - 10 Helpful hints for when a person with dementia has to go to hospital

People with dementia go into acute hospitals more often than the rest of the population. It is worth knowing what to do for the best when it happens.

This book should help you with all aspects including Accident and Emergency, visiting tactics on the ward, reducing the risk of pain and delirium, how to look out for medication errors and how to get out of hospital and home safely.

People with dementia can’t avoid going to hospital, even though it can be hazardous for them. Based on "Dementia: the one-stop guide" by Professor June Andrews, this book gives practical hints for families and friends on how you can help a patient with dementia survive a hospital admission.

10 Helpful hints for when a person with dementia has to go to hospital is available from DementiaShop priced at £7.50.
