My husband who has dementia and memory loss, was admitted into Rockingham Hospital to adjust his medication. I felt like all they wanted me to do was put him in a nursing home. It took 6 months going through Rockingham and getting nowhere, to only go to Bentley Mental Health Unit once and got what we wanted. Which was a change of medication to keep my husband at home and going into respite when needed. In my opinion, this was opposed to Rockingham Hospital who seemed to want to put him straight into a nursing home. My husband was left with bruises all up his arms at Rockingham, while at Bentley there wasn't any.
I felt like Bentley treated all of us, plus my husband as there priority, like all hospitals should do.
