Dementia care symptoms can vary significantly from person to person, and the condition is progressive, which means that people will often show different behavioural and physical changes depending on the stage of their condition. We tailor every dementia care package to each individual to ensure that your loved one is receiving the care that they need.
Dementia is a common health condition that can have a huge impact – both for the individual with the condition and for the family who love and care for that person. Although there is currently no cure for dementia, lots can be done to help manage the symptoms and ensure that people living with the condition are able to continue living safe, happy and independent lives.
With over 30 years of experience, we are a leading home care provider that offers the highest standards of dementia care. Being one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists means that we place a distinct focus on dementia care. All of our carers complete our in-house training programme, which provides intensive practical training and assessments on dementia care and the challenges faced by people with the condition. Every carer is trained to understand dementia and what it’s like to live with and care for someone with the condition. Many of our carers also choose to complete additional training modules to further enhance their knowledge on dementia care. This means you can have complete peace of mind that your loved one will receive the top-quality home care that they deserve.
A change of scenery can be extremely distressing for someone with dementia, which is why so many people are choosing home care as an alternative to residential care homes. We focus on independence and giving people control of their lives by providing care in the place they feel most comfortable – their home and community. Receiving support at home means that your loved one does not have to go through the stress and upheaval of moving into residential care. You can have complete peace of mind that your loved one is safe and comfortable at home, while receiving the specialist support that they need to maintain their freedom.
Our home care Bournemouth team can help with a wide variety of daily activities such as cleaning, cooking, administering medication, shopping and running errands. Having dedicated one-to-one support can also provide an excellent source of companionship for someone with dementia. Your loved one can build a close relationship with their regular carer, who will help to keep their mind as active as possible by playing memory games or having regular discussions about their activities. Providing the right level of care and support for your loved one can be fundamental to allowing them to continue living an independent, safe and happy life.
We understand that maintaining a steady routine is crucial for someone with dementia, as any sudden changes can cause a great deal of anxiety. This is why our carers will take the time to get to know your loved one’s patterns and routines and care for them in a way that they are comfortable with. Our carers will slot into your loved one’s routine and keep their lifestyle exactly how they like it, while trying to maintain their independence as much as possible.
The symptoms of dementia vary significantly and can evolve quickly as the condition advances. Our carers understand this and will use their expert knowledge and expertise to create a unique care plan that has been tailored to your loved one. This will be continuously reviewed and adapted as and when their needs change, to ensure that they are constantly receiving the highest standards of care.
We understand that choosing the best option to care for a loved one with dementia can be a difficult decision, but we’re here to support you every step of the way. If you would like to discuss your care options and find out how our professional trained dementia carers can help, then give our specialist customer care team a call. We are available to chat seven days a week and one of our friendly advisors would be happy to talk you through the options that could work for you and your loved one.
