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 affects hundreds of thousands of people all across the UK. The condition can have a significant practical and emotional impact on the person diagnosed, as well as the family and friends who love and care for that person. While there is currently no cure for the condition, many things can be done to help those with dementia live a happy, safe and independent life.
As one of the UK’s leading dementia care providers, we have over three decades of experience supporting people with dementia to live independently at home. All of our carers receive dementia training that enables then to understand and care for someone living with any of the different conditions that causes dementia, such as Alzheimer’s vascular dementia or Pick’s disease. This means you can have complete confidence that your loved one will receive the highest standards of dementia care available.
It is important to remember that the needs of someone with dementia can be complex, which can make caring for someone with the condition challenging. As the condition advances, people tend to display various physical and emotional behaviours that require different care approaches. This can make caring for someone with dementia extremely challenging. It is essential that a person with dementia is provided with the right care and support, so that they can continue living a safe and fulfilling life.
The symptoms of dementia vary significantly depending on what stage the condition is at, and some people diagnosed with dementia may not require any care. However, many people require some extra support as the condition progresses, to enable them to maintain their independence and quality of life.
A change of environment and routine can be very distressing for someone with dementia. This is why more and more people are seeking support for their loved ones in their own home, rather than residential care homes. Our home care Christchurch team are available to provide support whenever your loved one needs it. They can assist with a huge variety of daily activities including preparing meals, household chores, running errands, and administering medication. Our carers can also provide a fantastic source of companionship for someone with dementia. Most of our carers form strong relationships with the person they are caring for and become a trusted friend and companion.
We understand that dementia affects people differently and the symptoms can change quickly as the condition progresses. Our carers will take the time to get to know your loved one and develop a completely unique care plan, taking into account your loved one’s needs, interests and preferences. This will be continually updated as and when their needs change, to ensure that they are constantly receiving the right care for them.
We can arrange for a dedicated carer to visit your loved one first thing in the morning to provide some companionship and help with their morning routine. Or, one of our carers can move into your loved one’s home and provide them with full-time care and continuous support. Whatever level of care your loved one requires, you can be assured that our dedicated dementia carers will be on hand to help whenever you need them.
With over 30 years of industry experience, our carers are fully committed to improving the quality of life of those living with dementia. We understand that deciding how best to care for a loved one with dementia can be a daunting task, but we’re here to help every step of the way. You can give our specialist customer care team a call seven days a week to discuss how we can help.
