What does the dementia care team do?

The dementia care team supports patients with dementia, and their carers and relatives. The team provides a range of services to patients who are in hospital for reasons which may, or may not, be directly related to their dementia. The team operates across all of our hospitals and satellite sites.

Do I need a referral to access the service?

No. Anyone can refer a inpatient at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust to the team, including carers, family members or patients themselves.
