When you are first referred to the Memory Assessment Service, you will be allocated a Memory Support Worker who will be there to support you throughout your journey in the service. They will become your single point of contact for any queries or concerns you may have and help you or your loved ones get the right support.
All our Memory Support Workers have supported people with memory problems throughout their working lives and live locally, so they know their way around the city’s healthcare and support services. Memory Support Workers are sometimes referred to as “MSWs” for short.
There are five Memory Support Workers in our team – Sam, Elaine, Elija, Kate and Isadora.
Our trained Memory Support Workers understand that memory problems affect many aspects of life. When you are referred to the Memory Assessment Service you will be connected with a named Memory Support Worker who will stay in contact with you throughout your journey with the service. They will get to know what’s important to you, help you access any social support and help that you need, and offer advice about everyday living to you and your loved ones.
