"My Mother's Alzheimer's"

About: Springfield University Hospital

(as a relative),

My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's around six years ago. It was a terrifying time filled with worry and fear.

As a very small family we are enormously grateful for all the support and fantastic advice we have received from John, my Mother's community psychiatric nurse from Springfield Hospital. He has been a constant over the last few years and I really don't know what we would have done without his help.

As my mother's illness has worsened he has been there to offer practical advice and reassurance and has been so helpful in explaining what is happening and what we can do to support her and her illness. We are so thankful for all his support!
