Is dementia nursing undervalued?

Comment

I worked with people with dementia, they are human beings they are somebody's relative and they have contributed to this country all their working lives and beyond. Mental health wards are closing at a rapid rate as is dementia wards this means that when families can no longer cope ( and this is a last resort) they are not being placed on wards with nursing teams trained to look after people with dementia but are being place in general hospital beds with staff that have limited understand of people with dementia. This is not right yet we have to accept the closure of good wards because the NHS are being financially squeezed by the government to get the country back on track. I really hope that the government and the banks are so proud of there's elves.
