"Thank you for making mum smile again"

About: Grenoside Grange G1 ward (dementia)

(as a relative),

I was worried when mum was sectioned and sent to Grenoside Grange G1 Ward, but after I spoke to staff my worries were soon put aside. 

All the staff are fantastic and mum settled after a few days. Such a change in her behaviour - from being stressed and very poorly to being happy and contented, well looked after and cared for, which she wasn't receiving in the care home she was in before.

Just goes to show with the right people and experience family with this horrible disease, Dementia, can still have a quality of life and be happy.

Thank you G1 for making mum smile again x x 

PS. Please we need more places like G1.


Response from Jo Sims, Ward manager, Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust

Its great to hear that we made a difference.

On G1, our philosophy is to celebrate wellbeing in whatever form it appears and our aim is to restore quality of life for people who are struggling with their Dementia and also their carers. I am so happy & pleased that we made your Mum smile again.
