Connect Hope and Help

Older Adults Outreach

Working together with Alzheimers's Society and Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Burton and District Mind are doing even more to ensure our older adults (aged 50+) in our community have access to the mental health services and memory services they deserve.

National Healthcare Inequalities Improvement Programme

"Health inequalities are unfair and avoidable differences in health across the population, and between different groups within society. They arise because of the conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work and age. These conditions influence how we think, feel and act and can impact both our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Within this wider context, healthcare inequalities  are about the access people have to health services and their experience and outcomes."

"People living in areas of high deprivation, those from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and those from inclusion health group, for example the homeless, are most at risk of experiencing these inequalities."

We recognise that there is under-respresentation in older adult services from the following communities:

  • Black communities

  • Eastern European communities

  • Asian communities

  • Travelling Communities

  • People on probation or within Criminal Justice System

  • People who identify as LGBTQI+

  • Refugees and Asylum seekers

 

The service, provided by Alzhiemer's Society and Burton and District Mind, will support families and individuals to be more engaged with activities and support available in the community, and with accessing assessments through Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Our Outreach Workers and Dementia Advisors are available throughout:

  • East Staffordshire

  • Lichfield District

  • Tamworth Borough

  • Stafford Borough

  • Cannock Chase

  • South Staffs District

Assessments are usually conducted on Mondays or Thursdays

For counselling to be beneficial it is important to attend regular weekly appointments. If you are unable to attend an arranged appointment it is essential that you give us as much notice as possible. A message can be left at any time on our voicemail facility. If you fail to cancel in good time you may lose that session and if you miss two appointments without contacting us we will assume that you don’t wish to continue with the sessions.
