Help and support for people with dementia

If you or a loved one is concerned about your memory, please do arrange an appointment with a clinician to discuss your concerns.

If we agree that there may be a memory issue, we will arrange blood tests to look for all possible causes and then refer you to a local memory clinic.

If you are given a diagnosis of Dementia, you will be allocated a named GP and will be offered an annual health review by the practice. You will also have a Dementia Care Navigator who will offer regular support to you and your carers.

Someone who has dementia, delirium or other communication difficulties, can find changes, such as moving to an unfamiliar place or meeting new people who contribute to their care, unsettling or distressing. This is me provides information about the person at the time the document is completed. It can help health and social care professionals to build a better understanding of who the person really is. This is me should be completed by the individual(s) who know the person best and, wherever possible, with the person involved. It should be updated as necessary. It is not a medical document.
