This is me

This is me‘This is me’ is a leaflet produced by the Alzheimer’s Society to help hospital staff better understand the needs of people with dementia. The leaflet provides professionals with information about a person with dementia to help enhance the care and support they receive whilst in an unfamiliar environment. It is not a medical document.

This is me provides a ‘snapshot’ of the person behind the dementia and helps hospital staff to learn about the person’s habits, background, likes and dislikes. This form can be completed by the person with dementia or their carer with help from the person with dementia where possible.

This initiative is supported by the Royal College of Nursing. For more information about This is me or to obtain a copy visit the Alzheimer’s Society website
