Dementia Wellbeing

The Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Servicewill provide an integrated person-centred Primary Care led model for people with dementia and their family and carers. The Dementia Wellbeing Service will provide assessment, diagnosis, on-going wellbeing and services for people with complex needs, through shared care with Primary Care.

At the heart of the service will be relationship-centred care which emphasises the imperative to consider the needs of the family and carers to ensure on going wellbeing.  This must form the focus of the service, which will be supported by appropriately trained professionals, as well as volunteers. This will ensure the right care is delivered at the right time and in the right place. 

The service will understand that co-morbid health conditions are the normal and will provide an integrated response to support other mental health conditions as well as working with other services that support physical health needs.

To support the delivery of this service a GP Local Enhanced Service will be commissioned to enable a truly holistic primary care led approach.
