Feedback given by the patient over the telephone to the Memory Nurse

“You have shown so much understanding, and I couldn’t have wished for better help. You have helped me to feel I could cope, like there was light at the end of the tunnel.

I felt reassured to have had someone like you to go through all the appointments and experience with. I’m glad I attended clinic, even though I have had to get used to having this diagnosis I’m glad it was you who was there. Thank-you for your help”.
