If you have been referred to a Memory Clinic, it would be helpful for a relative or friend to accompany you to help with any questions about your background history and to support you during the appointment. Please bring a list of your regular medications, hearing aids and/or glasses if you usually wear them. The appointment usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour.
During the appointment, we will carry out some assessments to help us understand any difficulties that you might be experiencing. You may need to have further tests to check for underlying medical problems.
The team will discuss a likely diagnosis with you and give some follow up advice and support.
The team will keep you up to date with any findings and, if given permission, can inform your family and GP.
The service provides support to people from different ethnic backgrounds. We can provide an interpreter to help you communicate with us if English is not your first language. We can adapt our assessments to meet your needs.
