Newsletter April 2020

Memory Magazine

At the time of writing this we are in the midst of the Covid19 pandemic . The focus of this newsletter is how the virus will affect people with dementia and their families. With many dementia care homes closed to visitors this is a stressful time for both the dementia patient and the people who would normally be able to visit them. Dementia is not in itself a risk factor for Covid 19 infection but people with dementia could be at higher risk for transmitting infection as well as getting the infection. Download and read the newsletter for more information.
