What You Can Do

What you can do?

  • If your loved one is prone to falling at home please let our staff know this.
  • If your loved one suffers from confusion or dementia let our staff know as this may lead to them becoming more confused due to the unfamiliar environment in hospital.
  • Ensure your loved one has their glasses or hearing aids with them should they need them.
  • Where possible ensure that they have their walking aid and report any issues with this to our staff.
  • Ensure they have suitable footwear in (see leaflet for further details).
  • Make sure they have well fitting clothes with them. Day clothes are better than night wear as this encourages normal routines.
  • The Give and Go service can be used to supply anything your loved one needs.
  • If you are allowed to visit please avoid bedside clutter, ensure that you replace all chairs/table/call bell on leaving and let staff know if you notice a change in your loved ones condition.
