Dementia Patients Need Extra Bit of Care

Putting money into cures and treatments for dementia is one thing, ensuring care for the patients, the other. Both these aspects are two different concerns for dementia patients. And therefore, when David Cameron announced this week the money plans the Government has decided to contribute for the cure and treatment of dementia patients, Sir Mark Walport, the Director of Wellcome, immediately asked him about the initiatives he is planning to take “Care” of such people.

The reason behind this is that once during his visit to a hospital in Herefordshire for meeting a partner’s mother, he found that nurses there were hardly concerned about the dementia patients. He witnessed that dementia patients were calling out for a nurse and nurses were meticulously ignoring them.

They were busy deciding their venue for Saturday night out. Therefore, he asked the Government to plan some initiatives that could take care of such behavior in hospitals especially when it comes to dementia patients.

Sir Mark Walport said to David Cameron: It's all very well putting this money into care, but how are you going to make PEOPLE care? How do you build a caring society”?

The best solution for this is training. Nurses are expected to be caring naturally but this is not the situation these days. There is a need to train them in such a way that they reach inside themselves and give their best to their patients.
