Care Home Liaison Team 

Our Care Home Liaison Team specialises in meeting the needs of older adults with mental illness and dementia, working within care homes across Ashton, Leigh and Wigan.  
The team provides fast, proactive and responsive support to care homes to help them better meet the needs of their residents with mental illness and dementia to help reduce the need for hospital admissions. 

This includes carrying our mental health and memory assessment for residents, advising on the best type of treatment for the individual and advising staff on managing the symptoms and behaviours people with mental illness and memory problems like dementia may experience.  
We also provide training and education for care home staff to provide them with the skills and knowledge to provide effective care for residents with mental illness and memory problems. 

Who is our service for?

We accept referrals for people living in residential care and nursing homes across Ashton, Leigh and Wigan who have mental health problems and memory problems like dementia.  

Who do we work in partnership with?

We work closely with other local services and professionals such as GPs, district nurses, community matrons and social workers to promote proactive, joined-up care for people with mental illness and memory problems living in residential care.
