Memory services provide assessment and diagnosis of dementia and provide ongoing support and information to people with memory problems and their carers.
Memory services are specialist services for people of any age who may be experiencing memory difficulties, which includes early onset dementia.
Memory services offer a comprehensive assessment of an individual’s memory, ensuring that if dementia is an issue a diagnosis is given as soon as possible.
Once the diagnosis is given the services can help to support individuals in coming to terms with their diagnosis and provide useful strategies and treatments to help people minimise their memory difficulties.
Our aim is to help people live independently and safely.
Any of these difficulties may result in anxiety, frustration, anger, high levels of stress and a feeling of isolation. The teams are there to help patients and to manage these feelings.
