A day in the life of a Dementia Consultant (Story 1)

Dementia Consultant, Ashley Roberts, invites you to share ‘a day in the life of...’ as he discusses some of his most challenging cases and the “hurdles” that were faced in trying to achieve positive outcomes. Transitioning into a care home environment can often be an emotional and stressful time but for Marty and Richard, it was one of the hardest things to come to terms with.
In story one we hear about Marty. For Marty, to go from living alone for most of his life, to suddenly living with dozens of people all around him, 24 hours a day, was described as a “real shock to the system” and Marty was pushed to extreme limits for the first time in his adult life.
