New specialist dementia role to support patients 

Two new dementia specialist nurses have been appointed to support patients in North and North East Lincolnshire. They’ll be looking at how to make hospital environments dementia friendly and will be supporting staff in initiatives such as setting up memory boxes to help enhance the care for patients. David joins the Trust from Humber NHS Foundation Trust where he worked as a mental health nurse in the older people’s community mental health team. He says he’s looking forward to bringing his knowledge of community services to the Trust: “I’ve always been passionate about the care and support people with dementia and their carers receive. Dementia can bring its challenges and even more so in a hospital setting, so I hope this new role will have a positive impact for patients, carers and staff.” Kate has spent the last nine years working at the Goole Neuro-Rehab Centre at Goole hospital supporting patients with brain injuries. She held the position of lead nurse on the unit. She said: “I went on the dementia training at the Trust and found it very inspiring. I was able to relate a lot of the information to my experience with managing and caring for people with brain injuries.” Rachel Greenbeck, quality matron with a lead for dementia at the Trust, said: “With a growing ageing population and an increase in acute admissions of people with dementia, this is a significant investment which will see much needed support for patients and their carers as well as our staff.” In addition to the new roles for dementia two new acute learning disability liaison nurses are also being appointed at the Trust.
