Around 850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia and this is expected to continue rise to 1 million by 2025. Trinity has a number of dementia services available in the community, through our outpatients services and for inpatients.

How Trinity’s community dementia team can support you

Our community dementia service is available for people who live in their own home or in a care home within Trinity's catchment area.

The service aims to ensure people living with dementia, and their families and friends, have the same access to specialist palliative and end of life care as those living with other progressive, life-limiting illnesses such as cancer.

People with dementia often have complex needs. Our specialist service aims to provide dedicated support and advice to help people with dementia make decisions about their future care. The services our community dementia team provide includes:

  • Advance care planning to help people make decisions and record their wishes for care in the future
  • Care coordination to ensure that the right support is in place
  • Support for families and friends who care for someone with dementia
  • Managing symptoms such as pain, distress, confusion and anxiety
  • Advice and training for professionals who care for people in the later stages of dementia
  • Liaising with other services and signposting
