In a nutshell: Wristbands with a ‘forget me not’ flower are now being used at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals to make it clear which patients have dementia.  The idea came from Allyson Rigby an Emergency Department Senior Healthcare Assistant and said: “The adaptation to patient wristbands alerts staff to use dementia training, ensuring person-centred care that’s adapted to their individual needs – preventing unnecessary distress.”
