This chapter provides an overview of memory clinics in the United Kingdom, a conceptual basis for rehabilitation, and an update of a previous summary of psychosocial intervention. The suggested aim of psychosocial interventions in memory clinics is to maximize life quality for older people with suspected dementia and their families by preventing future distress and disability, including the commonly reported behavioural challenges. The literature and clinical experience is used to guide the clinician on issues to be considered in assessment and application of individualized psychosocial intervention in practice.
