Breens Solicitors is backing the Alzheimer’s Society efforts to help people with dementia retain their sense of self and identity.
The Alzheimer’s Society-produced leaflet, This is Me, allows a person with dementia to complete or have a relative or friend complete for them, details about their background, routines and personality.
The four page booklet – endorsed by the Royal College of Nursing – is helpful in situations where a person with dementia is unable to communicate very well. It is important to maintain routine for a person with dementia and the form can help new carers to understand the person with dementia’s needs more quickly. This can prove extremely useful for respite care and hospital admissions.
