I am based at the Honiton community Hospital and work Mondays to Thursdays. I work for the Royal Devon and Exeter Trust but am professionally supported by the charity Dementia UK. Referrals to the service are via your Honiton Surgery General Practitioner or another Health and Social Care professional with the Honiton area. I am also available to talk to at the Honiton memory café and carer support groups where I attend monthly
