Our Older Adult Community Mental Health Teams (OA CMHTs) provide individualised assessment and recovery-based interventions and support; for both complex mental health related needs, also for co-morbid emotional disorders and behaviours that challenge in people experiencing dementia. 

We offer you support in your own home and the community and our teams are comprised of:

  • Administrative support staff

  • Occupational therapists
  • Consultant psychiatrists
  • Associate practitioner support workers
  • Access/direct referral to:
  • Older adult psychology

  • Neighbourhood Teams

Our teams link and work with a wide range of other services to ensure the provision of comprehensive and joined-up care. These include social and continuing healthcare providers as well as third sector and voluntary services. Further, our older adult community teams are also core members of all countywide primary care based multi-agency Neighbourhood Teams (NTs). This enables direct access to seamless multi-agency support for other complex health and social needs such as frailty, falls, long-term conditions and key community support resources
