Why dementia home care is a good option
There are lots of things to get used to after a dementia diagnosis; you may notice that your loved one’s memory is starting to decline and they’re struggling to recall everyday words, or perhaps they’re forgetting to dress themselves properly or make their meals. With dementia home care from our friendly carers, we can provide all of you with the reassurance that you’re seeking so that you have full confidence in the safety and wellbeing of your loved one in their home.
Another benefit of dementia care at home is that your loved one won’t have the upheaval of having to leave their beloved home, one perhaps that they have lived in for most of their adult life. A change in routine for someone with dementia can be quite unsettling, added to this a change in environment can really be quite stressful, so enabling them to stay in the familiarity of their own home can greatly aid their everyday happiness and symptom management.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Dementia home care can start from as little as 30 minutes per week with regular calls to check on your loved one, tidy up around their home and make them some lunch. What’s more, if you and your family live quite a distance away from them and just want someone to pop in once a day to check they’re safe and well, our Chelmsford team can do exactly that for you. We’ll take great care in ensuring that we only send the same small select team of carers to visit your loved one, so that they are familiar with their routines and them as a person, thereby reducing any anxieties or worry about different people entering their home.
If your loved one is in the later stages of dementia or has more complex care needs in addition to their diagnosis, dementia live-in care allows them to have 24-hour support at home with everything from personal care, mobility assistance and medication administration to someone to take care of the housework, shopping and meal preparation. As well as getting round-the-clock care, you’ll also have the added benefit of building a rapport with your dedicated carer who will get to know you, your health care needs and how you like things done, perhaps even building a friendship along the way.
