Community dementia nurses
Community Dementia Nurses provide support to GP practices in the diagnosis, management and treatment of dementia. They are also responsible for monitoring dementia medications. The service also provides short term support to people with dementia and their carers to address issues and immediate care needs arising from their diagnosis.
This service can be accessed through the patient or carers GP or by contacting Managing Memory ²gether on 0800 694 8800 or email 2gnft.ManagingMemory2g@nhs.net
Community Dementia Nurses work closely with the Dementia Adviser Service that is delivered through the Alzheimer’s Society. Dementia Advisers help anyone diagnosed with dementia and their families to get the information they need about the illness and where to find the most appropriate services in their local area.
