Dementia Friendly Practice

Dementia and Wollaton Park Medical Centre Wollaton Park Medical Centre has signed up to become dementia-friendly. We will be working with Alzheimer's Society during the coming year and our staff will be participating in General Practice specific dementia awareness sessions. We will also be carrying out an assessment of how dementia-friendly we are and take steps to improve areas that need attention. We welcome any feedback about how we are doing from patients, families and carers. Included here are some useful contacts and links for support or advice if you are living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia. ·         Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Support Service (Nottingham and Nottinghamshire): Tel: 0115 934 3800 ·         Alzheimer’s Society website (for anyone affected by dementia): https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/ ·         Dementia Connect: https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/info/20011/find_support_near_you#!/search ·         National Dementia Helpline: 0300 222 11 22
