Two memory advisory services evaluated in South of England. 10 staff and 20 service users interviewed. Comparison of memory cafe to provide stimulation with provision of home visits for tailored support including signposting.

Outcome

Both models successful to some degree, but home visits were more able to identify and meet individual needs and thereby help people with dementia and their carers sustain good QoL.
