Home-based treatmentPeople over the age of 70 or those living with dementia
Camden and Islington residents with an acute mental illness over the age of 70 and people of any age living with dementia who meet one of the following criteria:
a. Those who are acutely mentally unwell and under consideration for mental health hospital admission or who may need hospital admission if they deteriorate.
b. Patients at Highgate Mental Health Unit who require intensive support to facilitate an early discharge. We will work with frail people under 70 who are care coordinated in a SAMH Community Mental Health Team.
We provide a rapid response, time-limited intervention for older adults - including people with dementia - in a mental health crisis, delivered in your home.
We also support informal carers and domiciliary care workers.
