Is dementia nursing undervalued?


I think your comments are very valid i am a nurse and a dementia champion for my hospital. We have recently re vamp our ward with the help of the kings fund. This has made a massive difference to our Dementia patients so keep faith we are moving forward in the right direction. Also picking up the point of little or no training for staff this is certainly a area that needs working on. My staff do the best they can but more trianing would be invaluable. More money needs to go into elderly care full stop it is a area with less staff and triaing than any other area. Nurses do the best they can with what they have and are amazing, credit is never given to these nurses who believe me work above and beyond what they should in a area that is challenging and does not always get the resouces and staffing that is rightly needed. Praise to all the nurses who work in this area and any other.
