A new service, ‘Mindset’, which aims to provide emotional and psychological support following a dementia diagnosis. This is a pilot and is funded by the NHS CCG. It’s basically an 8 week course for the person with dementia, with a pre and post session added in for family member to attend as well, and looks at gently supporting people who are coming to terms with/trying to get their head around a dementia diagnosis.

People can self-refer or be referred by professionals.
