Help for dementia patients to stay home

The NHS in East Kent has launched a consultation to improve care for older people with dementia and other mental health problems. The aim is to support more people with dementia to live well in their homes for longer.

There are plans to invest £600,000 in improving home treatment services and provide a round the clock dementia crisis service. It's hoped that hospital wards in Canterbury, Ashford and Margate will be remodelled too.

Roadshows are to take place at the following venues where you can find out more:

  • 17 April: St Mary Bredin Church, Nunnery Fields, Canterbury. 10am - 12:30pm
  • 17 May: The Landmark Centre, 129 High Street, Deal. 10:30am - 12:30pm
  • 14 June: Norman House Event Centre, Beaver Industrial Estate, Beaver Road, Ashford. 2:30pm - 4:30pm
