Reaching out to people with dementia and to anyone needing memory support
The Butterfly Scheme provides a system of hospital care for people living with dementia or who simply find that their memory isn’t as reliable as it used to be; memory impairment can make hospitalisation distressing, but it needn’t be. In hospital, dozens of staff can pass through a patient’s life each day and in order to deliver appropriate care, they need to know that a patient has dementia or memory impairment and
how to support them; this is where the Butterfly Scheme comes in. The Butterfly Scheme has now been adopted by over a hundred hospitals across the length and breadth of the UK; hospital staff really do want to care well and they typically enjoy using the skills and systems provided by the Butterfly Scheme, enabling them to care appropriately for this patient group.
