"Community Dietitian has been essential"

About: Bromley Healthcare / Dietitians (Bromley)

(as a service user),

Michelle,Community Dietitian,Bromley Health Care has been attending to my wife over recent times.My wife was diagnosed with dementia in Alzheimer's in 2012 and the progressive nature of this condition has required the help and assistance of the Dietitian services.Main problem is that she has swallowing problems,dysphagia.

Michelle has provided excellent help and support in this area of her condition.

This is to thank Michelle for her input which has helped to contribute to my being able to keep my wife properly cared for and as comfortable as possible.These services are essential in enabling those with medical conditions requiring professional input at home as against hospitalisation or Nursing Home Care.It is hoped that the decision makers think likewise and stop the cuts.

Response from Julie Miller, Patient Experience Lead, Bromley Healthcare

Dear Very Satisfied user

Thank you so much for posting this excellent feedback. I will of course ensure that Michelle and the team are made aware of your comments.

It is such a lovely start to the day to read of the support that you have been provided by the dietician in caring for your wife. We do understand how hard it is for carers and the necessity of ensuring that support is provided.

With this in mind I am sure that you are aware of the Bromley Dementia Support Hub who are a one stop access for support for carers and people with Dementia in the Bromley Borough. The telephone number for advice and support is: 0203 328 0366

If you do have any further comments regarding the support that you have been provided by Bromley Healthcare then you are most welcome to contact me away from this web site at Julie.miller5@nhs.net

With Kind regards to both you and your wife

Julie
