New website: pre-memory clinic support
DCAN (Dementia Change Action Network) have published the Next Steps website to support people who are waiting for a memory assessment appointment. The website is for anyone who has been referred for an appointment at a memory assessment service as well as family members, carers, and organisations who support them. It helps people to find the right support at the right time and includes information on what to expect from the assessment process and ways to support wellbeing.
A link to this website could be given to people by their GP while a referral to a memory clinic is made or be included on an appointment letter from a memory clinic.
