Dementia and Frailty Service

You have been referred as you may be experiencing mental health problems such as a memory or some other mental health problem.

Frailty is a state of mental, physical or emotional vulnerability especially in later life. It can mean you need a high level of support with personal care, for example, or that you are not able to do these things for yourself.
The team will give you:

  •  A detailed assessment of your memory and mental health
  •  Help to manage at home and when out and about
  •  A diagnosis of your condition
  •  Treatment (with medication if appropriate)
  •  Support and information about your diagnosis
  •  Information about other agencies that can offer support or advice
  •  Follow up appointments with a member of our specialist team or in our nurse-led clinics.
