Dementia Awareness - Dementia Friendly Dental Practice

Dementia awareness among dentistry is becoming increasingly important. Therefore, we as a surgery have decided to take the necessary steps to work towards being a dementia friendly practice.

We are doing this by:

  • Joining the Alzheimers Societies Dementia Awareness programme - Meaning we are Dementia Friends
  • We have conducted an audit to look for any shortcomings in the way we run our practice
  • We have an action plan to move foward
  • We are looking into joining Worthings Dementia Action Alliance
  • We have had recent training in how dementia affects people
  • We will continue to update on how we have improved our practice to aid people with dementia and their carers/family members feel more comfortable while they are with us.
