Greenwich Dementia Support Service
The Greenwich MindCare Dementia Information and Support Service was launched in April 2020 to provide dementia advice, information and support for people with a dementia diagnosis and their carers.
The new service replaces the previous provision, which was run by the Alzheimer’s Society.
The Greenwich Mindcare service will continue to build on the close partnership work with Oxleas Memory clinic. Dementia advisors are situated alongside the Memory Service at Memorial Hospital, ensuring a seamless route from diagnosis to accessing an advice, information and support.
The new service provision includes:
- Personalised advice and information.
- Individual, person-centred support planning.
- Help to access other support, services and community resources.
- Carer-specific workshops.
- Follow-up support and contact.
Clients who were receiving dementia support from the previous service provider will be able to transfer easily into the new service.
Services are continuing to be delivered by phone where appropriate during at the current time. Please get in touch via the contact details below.
