Start your journey

A new member or carer must be referred to our services

and undergo assessment before we are able to support them.

Check that you are eligible

We are only able to support people who meet the following criteria:

  • There is a diagnosis of dementia, or there is an assessment for dementia currently ongoing


  • They live in a North Trafford ward.

      Check our list here.

If the person with dementia does not meet the above criteria, we will be unable to accept a referral for them.

Unsure if you are eligible? 

Have a chat with our team and we'll clear it up.

Make sure you have everything you need

Before you start your New Referral Form, you will need to have to hand:

  • The date of the dementia diagnosis, or your nearest estimation

  • Who made the diagnosis

  • The name and address of your GP

We can no longer accept incomplete New Referral Forms.  You must answer every question on the form in order for it to be processed.
