Highlighting the Needs of Individuals with Dementia

I recently read about NHS England’s exciting new dementia diagnosis drive where hundreds more individuals will be checked for dementia. This specialist service is being trialled across England through 14 new pilot schemes; care home residents will be proactively assessed for their condition by Specialist Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals.

World Parkinson’s Awareness Day

On Monday 11th April, CareFlex will join Parkinson’s communities worldwide to mark the 2022 awareness campaign.

“It’s time to start the conversation. It’s time to talk about Parkinson’s.”
