Redbridge memory service

The memory service offers assessment, diagnosis, treatment and therapeutic interventions to people aged 18 years and over who experience memory problems.

Memory clinics form part of the memory service and they can provide assessments, follow-up appointments and reviews. Interventions may also involve community outreach visits and group work. Some memory services also provide support to residential and nursing homes via information and visits, including special training sessions. These training sessions for dementia care staff support and improve the quality of care provided to individuals, which may assist in reducing the possibility of hospital admission.

The memory service is provided by psychiatrists, psychologists, community mental health nurses, occupational therapists and support, time and recovery workers and admiral nurses. Admiral nurses focus on carers of individuals who have dementia and offer on-going support, individually and in groups. The memory service also works with key partner agencies on the dementia care pathway.
