We offer assessments and interventions if you have age-related needs and are suffering from acute, severe and enduring mental health problems including anxiety, depression, psychosis, confusion, dementia and related behavioural problems. Our services are not exclusively for people over 65.
Our team works alongside other teams and organisations to provide interventions. Our specific functions include:
We accept all referrals through the Single Point of Access team.
Once we receive your referral, we organise a time and date to meet you. At this session we assess you. From this assessment we agree a plan of action with you. This could be advice and signposting or you could be taken on by the community team for specific interventions to help with your mental health issue.
If you have been referred for an assessment of your memory, we either see you at your home address or invite you to attend a clinic appointment.
These interventions could include:
If you would benefit clinically, we also put you on a trial of memory medication.
