Memory Service (Lewisham)

What does it do?

The Lewisham Memory Service offers comprehensive assessment, treatment and support options to anyone over the age of 18 years who is experiencing memory problems which are likely to indicate dementia in the borough of Lewisham
The service is comprised of a multidisciplinary team who work in collaboration with the UHL.
We offer a comprehensive assessment package based on the principles of recovery, and we are committed to supporting carers of people with dementia.
Following assessment, we coordinate individualised care planning. This may include prescribing of medication if appropriate,
post diagnostic support and signposting, problem solving strategies, or individual or group therapy which is offered for both clients and carers. We can also organise for continuous follow up though our dementia advisors.
We have a close working relationship with the memory clinics at University Hospital Lewisham to ensure we provided the highest quality specialist care.
