Kingston Community Mental Health Team for older people and memory service

Who we are

We provide specialist assessment, diagnosis and treatment for people who are worried about their memory. We also specialise in assessing and treating older people with other mental health conditions. We hope you will find our service useful and supportive.

Who is the service for

We provide services for older people aged 75 and over with a mental health problem but we also accept referrals of younger people where frailty is of a level where their needs can be best met by this service.  We accept referrals to the Memory Service of people younger than 75 where memory is the primary concern. We also assess and treat people who already have a diagnosis of dementia who may have additional mental health symptoms.

What you can expect

We assess and treat people with depression, psychosis, dementia and other mental health problems that cannot be managed within Primary Care.

Everyone who uses our services first gets an assessment of their mental health needs and a plan of the care and support they will receive. They will also will also have one named person who co-ordinates their care and support. This person will be called either a named professional or, if your needs are more complex, a care co-ordinator. This person should be your main point of contact.  You can speak to them about how your treatment and support are going. We are committed to Trust Values and aim to provide you with an excellent service.
