Healthwatch dementia and mental health service experience

Healthwatch North Tyneside would like to hear your views and experiences of using mental health and dementia services for older people – what is working well? what could be done better?

Mental health for older people was highlighted as a priority for local people in our annual ‘What matters to you?’ survey. By sharing your views you can ensure service users and carers voices are listened to and improve services in the borough for people aged 65 and over.

Are you:

  • aged 65 and over and have experience of using mental health services;
  • aged 65 and over and have experience of using dementia and memory services; or
  • a carer or family member of someone aged 65 and over who has used either of the services above

You can have your say by talking to one of our team by phone or in person. Or we can arrange to visit your group or service and talk to older people and carers about their experience.

For more information or to get involved contact Jo on 0191 263 5321 or email j.brown@hwnt.co.uk
