From the Irish Nurses and Midwive’s Organisation May edition

“The diagnostic process described by Elizabeth was a drawn out and often excruciating affair. The story will serve as a useful insight for healthcare providers into dementia care from the perspective of the patient and their loved ones”

“This is a story of personal experience with dementia and the lessons learned from it. Elizabeth is at pains to get across that at all times she was trying to be her husband’s voice and to maintain his dignity. With great humour, she readily accepts that she sometimes got things wrong but tells an often worrying tale of the ‘care’ her husband received from the various healthcare professionals whom they sought help from.”
