Memory / Dementia Assessments

Memory assessments are conducted by our older adult consultant psychiatrist, Dr Moreton.

We aim to identify memory problems, such as dementia, through a thorough assessment including speaking with the patient and their friend/family, memory testing, arranging a head scan, and blood tests to assess for reversible causes of memory problems. If a dementia is diagnosed then medication options will be discussed.

We have experience of delivering 5 star services to over 10,000 patients every year.

This is why our patients rate us Excellent on Trustpilot.

What type of treatments are available?

Mental health problems are common with around one in four people experiencing them every year. If you are suffering from one of the many conditions, a combination of self-care, treatment and support, that’s right for you, will help you to get better. Many who ‘get back to their old selves’, say they should have asked for help from a specialist in mental health sooner than they did. There are many ways of treating mental health problems based on your diagnosis by a psychiatrist. Here are the most common mental health treatments available.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) can be an effective treatment for a range of mental health problems. CBT is a relatively short-term method to help you develop practical skills to manage any negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Psychiatric Medicines are the most common type of treatment available. They reduce many of the symptoms caused by mental health problems. Antidepressants are mostly prescribed if you have depression but may also be your treatment for conditions such as anxiety, OCD and eating disorders.

Talking Treatments provide a regular session for you to talk about thoughts, experiences and difficult feelings that are affecting your normal emotional wellbeing. This method can be used to develop more positive ways of living day to day, as well as coping with unsettling memories, improving relationships and dealing with a specific problem.

Before you decide on any method or take any medication, make sure you have looked properly at all of the options and advice and that you feel confident and comfortable in your decision.

Frequently Asked Questions.

When is medication needed for psychiatric disorders?

Medication can be very helpful for a wide range of psychiatric disorders. And one of the best known examples is clinical depression. But there are a wide range of disorders including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) , where people can get a great deal of benefit from psychiatric medications.

What is Depression?

Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. Some people think depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They're wrong – it is a real illness with real symptoms. Depression is not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together".

As well as a very low mood there are a range of other symptoms that go along with it. For example, feeling hopeless, sometimes feeling suicidal, and also having biological symptoms, such as loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, and the loss of libido. The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people with depression can make a full recovery.

What are antidepressants?

Antidepressants are a type of medicine used to treat clinical depression. They can also be used to treat a number of other conditions, including: obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), generalised anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) It's thought they work by increasing levels of chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. Certain neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and noradrenaline, are linked to mood and emotion.

What are the causes of bipolar?

Bipolar disorder is widely believed to be the result of chemical imbalances in the brain. The chemicals responsible for controlling the brain's functions are called neurotransmitters, and include noradrenaline, serotonin and dopamine. If there's an imbalance in the levels of one or more neurotransmitters, a person may develop some symptoms of bipolar disorder. It's also thought bipolar disorder is linked to genetics, as it seems to run in families. The family members of a person with bipolar disorder have an increased risk of developing it themselves.

What is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is primarily trained to prescribe medications and diagnose psychiatric disorders, although some psychiatrists can also offer psychological therapies as well. A psychologist has specialist training in giving people talking treatments or psychological therapies. The things to bear in mind when choosing whether to see a psychiatrist or psychologist are whether you’re likely to need medication or not. If you will need medication, then it’s very important to be assessed and treated by a psychiatrist, though you may also need to see a psychologist for talking treatment as well.

What is involved in a psychiatric consultation?

A psychiatric consultation is a meeting to look into the symptoms that you’re having to see how long you’ve been suffering from them and what might have led to them coming on. You would talk about all the different factors, which could have led to the psychiatric difficulties that you’re having now. Your psychiatrist would diagnose your condition and prescribe the most appropriate medication.
