People with dementia can't avoid going to hospital, even though it can be hazardous for them. It is worth knowing what to do for the best when it happens. This is really important, because a hospital is full of avoidable dangers and can ruin the stability of a person with dementia, causing chaos and distress for the rest of their life, and even in some cases shortening it. 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 more safely.
