If you are accompanying a relative who has a memory problem or a diagnosis of dementia, you may be asked to complete a This is Me booklet.

This will help our staff better understand and care for your relative during their stay, and should be brought in when they are admitted for surgery.

A blue butterfly will be attached to the patient notes and ward documentation to alert hospital staff that the patient has a This is Me document.
