TWO NHS Foundation Trusts have linked to provide their members with more information

about how to cope when family or friends with dementia go into hospital.

Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and the Norfolk and Norwich

University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will be hosting a joint event on the subject.

Named Coming into hospital- improving care for patients with dementia, it is being held from 2pm to 5pm on Tuesday, August 10 at the John Innes Conference Centre, Norwich.

Maggie Wheeler, Chair of Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust said:

“As a mental health trust we have considerable experience and expertise in working with people

with dementia.

“But people with dementia also get cancer, have heart disease, break their legs - they need to

know that as well as the excellent physical care they require, the special needs of their

dementia will also be understood. That is why understanding dementia is vital to all of us in our

community - and why I welcome this joint initiative”.
