The Dementia Coordinator with Help & Care has been running since 1st April 2021 and within that time we have reached out to around 2,000 people with dementia and/or their carers. They have around 20 Dementia Coordinators who cover the North, East and West of Dorset.
They help people with dementia and their carers post-Dementia diagnosis who are automatically referred to them by the Memory Assessment Service. Once the person with dementia and/or their carer is contacted, they stay on each Dementia Coordinators caseload and receive a 12 month follow up call after their initial assessment. However if they wish to contact the service in-between that time, they are more than welcome to.

This is just some of the information they can provide. If they are unable to provide the information straight away, they will look into it and get back to the client at the earliest opportunity.
