The practice knows that more can be done to help and support our patients with memory loss and dementia, and their carers. To address this, we have developed an action plan to follow over the next year to help us become a Dementia Friendly Practice.
Sister Cheryl Perkins is our nominated Dementia Lead and will be working closely with the whole team to put teaching and resources into place.
This page on our website is part of this work and will be developed as the year progresses.
The Alzheimer's Organisation is a good source of information, advice and support, and their website can be accessed here.
For information about local services and support for those with dementia and their carers, please do take a look at the Dementia Oxfordshire website here. The site includes advice and has a helpline for you to call, but it also has information on local groups and cafes.
You may be interested to know about research that is taking place locally, or even to consider taking part in research yourself. Oxfordshire Dementia and Aging Research (OxDARE) aims to bring local research teams and patients together. If would like to read more about their work, you can access the OxDARE website here.
We would love your feedback and input at any time. Please call or write to the Practice Director, Annaliese Owen, or jot your idea on a piece of paper and hand to reception, or just tell one of the team what you think.
