Your Local Dementia Home Treatment Team (DHTT)

Who do DHTTs support?

Here in Powys we have two Dementia Home Treatment Teams who provide a rapid response, assessment and intensive support to patients in their own homes, residential and nursing homes and community hospitals.

Our service is aimed at people aged 65 above or those with a young onset dementia diagnosis who are presenting with an acute psychiatric crisis of such severity that without the involvement of the DHTT, they are at risk of hospital admission to a mental health ward.


Opening Hours

Our North Powys Dementia Home Treatment Team has core operating hours of 8:30am until 7:00pm, 365 days a year.

Our newly established South Powys Dementia Home Treatment Team currently has core operating hours of 9am until 5pm, Monday to Friday.


How to access the service

Access to the service is by a referral from a health professional.


What to expect

Our Dementia Home Treatment Teams provide an intensive, safe home treatment service in the least restrictive way. Their aim is to cause minimum disruption to a person’s life whilst meeting their needs in the early stages of acute psychiatric presentations. Interventions are usually made via regular home visits and telephone contact. Interventions are short term and usually last no longer than 6 weeks.


Our DHTTs can make referrals where needed to our mental health inpatient wards for individuals who would benefit from a hospital stay. Our DHTTs can also refer individuals to other services such as Psychology, Community Mental Health Teams, Local Primary Mental Health Support Service Teams and many more.
