National Dementia Awards

National accolade for Lead Dementia Nurse

A Salford Royal nurse has scooped a prestigious accolade for her outstanding contribution to the care of dementia patients.


Janice McGrory, Lead Nurse for Dementia and Delirium, has been crowned the Best Dementia Nurse Specialist/Dementia Lead at the 5th National Dementia Care Awards.


Janice – who, along with Dementia Specialist Nurse Jackie Marsh, scooped the Improving Personal Care award at the Salford Royal Staff Awards in October - was selected by the judges at the National Dementia Care Awards because of her ability to recognise and address the potential barriers to delivering best practice in dementia care.


They were also impressed with how Janice had actively engaged and involved people living with the effects of dementia.


Janice said: “There are huge strides being made to improve the experience of people living with dementia and their carers, and to have been identified as the best at a national level is an honour.


“Although Jackie and I spearhead the work being done at Salford Royal, it would be impossible to achieve the improvements without the support of all our fellow staff and the Salford community.”


The National Dementia Care Awards is an annual event organised by The Journal of Dementia Care, a multidisciplinary journal for all professional staff working with people with dementia, in hospitals, nursing and residential care homes, day units and the community.


The awards on the night were presented by Paul Sinha, a qualified GP and international stand-up comic.
