This is a useful technique because it gives you a hard copy of the thoughts whirling around your head.

The daughter of an older woman with dementia approached my trust, Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, to seek care for her mother. The daughter was aware of community-based Admiral Nursing services and believed providing the service in hospital would meet the gap in specialist provision.
