Medical Centre Takes Steps to Become Dementia Friendly
Susan Gilbert, Practice Nurse at Tieve Tara Medical Centre in Castleford
Tieve Tara is part of the NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which plans and pays for local health services in the Wakefield and Five Towns district.

Signage fulfils a crucial role within medical centres. By installing appropriate signage, in clearly visible places, many serious issues can be alleviated or prevented.

Medical centre's are often times big and intimidating - causing people to become nervous if they are unable to find their way around. Adding reliable, reassuring visual orientation aids to the environment is a long-term solution that Tieve Tara is happy they've invested in.

Susan Gilbert says:
"The signage is making positive difference to the environment, enabling people to locate the toilet quickly and find the consultation rooms with ease."

In addition to Tieve Tara, other medical centres and churches in the area are taking steps to become dementia friendly- implementing improvements that will enhance quality of life.

Monies are available in the Wakefield area, through the Innovation Fund, for those wishing to make their environment more dementia friendly.
