Sunday Musings – 21 Oct 2018

This week

It was a quieter start to the week by Wednesday, Hidden Disabilities had once again made the news

On Thursday I met with Donna Chadwick from Young Dementia UK to discuss the interviews next week for the Care Coordinator role for Sheffield and on Friday we went to Graves Park Health and Sports Centre to look at facilities for a young onset Dementia Support Group, things are beginning to happen in Sheffield.

Yesterday, I published an article about Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s) and Dementia which looked at how something as simple as a UTI could lead someone down the pathway of BPSD to Chemical/Physical Restraint, Safeguarding/Sectioning and Involuntary care.

Blog of The Week

How do you treat someone with an invisible disability ?

“One of the last times I got the train home to Cornwall, I was bullied by one of the platform staff at my destination, who then gleefully dared me to report her. I wouldn’t, she implied, because I was gaming the system. My crime? I’d booked assistance to help lift my small case and shopping bag – and I didn’t look ill.”
