‘Read about Me’ toolkit for carers and healthcare workers

Read about Me

‘Read about Me’ is a simple, effective new way to assist people with a dementia or cognitive impairment who are receiving medical care.

The toolkit was created by Cardiff and Vale Health Board and encourages patients to offer person-centred information.

This allows staff to have a better understanding of the patient without the need for repetition of their personal story. This helps to maintain continuity of care for them throughout their journey.

It is easy for carers to complete and patients can take their ‘Read about Me’ with them wherever their journey takes them during their stay in hospital.

Read more information about the ‘Read about Me’ toolkit on the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board website.
