The service will also provide support for those people who at the end of the diagnostic process are felt by diagnosing clinicians to have Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

The service will provide support for those people under 65, who have a diagnosis of early onset dementia.

The service will work in partnership with a wide range of organisations including General Practitioners as part of an integrated approach. It will facilitate identifying issues leading to deterioration and will work with agencies to ensure a timely and pro-active response. It is expected that Care Coordination and support for Advanced Care Planning will assume a key element of the Dementia post diagnostic support service.
