Abstract:

The recent development of the National Dementia Strategy and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines have added to the proposals of the National Service Frameworks for Older Adults and Mental Health to improve services for people with a diagnosis of dementia. In line with this, the occupational therapy service in Rossendale began wellbeing groups in an attempt to increase the mental wellbeing of the service users accessing memory assessment services. A review was conducted using a satisfaction questionnaire to establish whether the group was meeting the initial aims for attendees and carers.
