    In partnership with commissioners we will continue to provide regular on-going holistic reviews to all people living with dementia in the community and carers.

    Clinical care Service is based on the bio-psycho-social model of dementia, which understands dementia as the interrelationship between neurological damage and psychosocial factors. The model supports the teams to understand the factors which influence the subjective dementia experience and identify interventions to support the person living with dementia and their carer(s). This makes our care and support person-centred, as it recognises that each person has a unique experience. This model allows us to work in a holistic way, as our interventions a range of different factor which influence this experience.

    We will ensure that all people living with dementia living in the community have a skilled allocated worker from one of our dementia services.
