Thanet Community Mental Health Service for Older People

We are a community service for both older people with mental health needs, which are complicated by age related needs, and for people, of all ages, who have needs related to dementia. We also provide support and advice to professionals, care homes and carers.

Patients receive an initial assessment after which a plan will be made in collaboration with the patient as to what the next steps might be. This may involve further appointments with health care professionals, invitations to the groups we offer, therapy and neuropsychological assessments.

Our team comprises of consultant psychiatrists, community psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, support workers, Admiral nurses and administrative staff.
