Learning Disability Dementia service

The Learning Disability Dementia service aim is to co-ordinate dementia screening and assessment for those adults with a learning disability in the Trust who present with a change in their cognition. This will be done by liaising with case manager/key worker colleagues and multi-disciplinary professionals to ensure a through, timely assessment, whilst keeping the service user at the centre of the process.

The learning disability dementia service will provide post diagnostic support and intervention for all those who receive a diagnosis of dementia and advocate where required, ensuring that each individual who is referred in to the service is provided with person centred, holistic care to meet their own unique needs.

The team will support the service user, carer and/or care provider by providing information to help them navigate health and social care systems and sign post to other appropriate services.
