Elderly Mental Health
Bodnant Ward and
Although Bodnant Ward and Day Hospital serves part
of the Conway and Denbighshire National Health Trust it receives
some of its staff support from the North West Wales Trust which
many people consider odd.
The ward itself offers in-patient, intensive rehabilitation
to elderly people with both functional and organic mental health
problems, the intention is to treat people, arrange a package of
continuing care and move people back to their own homes in order
to maintain independence.
Whilst the Day Hospital may form part of the continuing
care package 'it ain't necessarily so!' some Day Hospital Clients
have never been inpatients in the Ward. Students at Bodnant have
the opportunity to attend and participate in the Memory Clinic a
useful means of identifying clients with Alzheimer's Disease and
other forms of dementia and monitoring their progress.
Bodnant is also the base for a team of Community Mental
Health Nurses specialising in problems of the elderly, having the
team based in the Unit facilitates close liaison and cooperation
between the different groups of staff.
Students opting for placement at Bodnant will have
the opportunity of receiving comprehensive experience of care provision
for the elderly with mental health problems.
Further inforrmation about Bodnant Ward and Day Hospital
may be obtained from Martin
