We are concerned for residents and their families who are struggling to afford to pay for the care they have been assessed as needing. Many are now struggling financially with some going into debt to maintain the care they need or going without some of the care.
World Alzheimer’s Month – raising awareness and challenging stigma
September is World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise dementia awareness and challenge stigma. This year's theme is all about the power of knowledge. Once you know more about dementia, once you are armed with information, advice and support, you are better able to prepare and adapt.
We are asking local people to send examples of poorly written NHS appointment letters, emails or texts. With your support, we can identify how local health services in West Sussex can improve their communications.
I didn’t know about Healthwatch but I called them on the suggestion of a friend. I had quite a long story... it really helped me to talk it through with someone, to see a way forward and to point me in the right direction. Thank you.
