"Treatment for my mother for dementia with the Community Mental Health Team"

About: South West London And St George's Mental Health NHS Trust / Older people's mental health

(as a relative),

My 85 year old mother has been attending clinics for dementia under Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Davidson since 2011. My mother has always been treated with care and compassion and all staff based at Tolworth Hospital are friendly and helpful.

My mothers care has now been passed to Neil the Dementia Clinic Nurse who she has now met on two occasions. Neil is patient, kind and informative.

As my mothers sole carer I would not hesitate to contact them if I had any problems I wished to discuss. Their support is greatly appreciated.
