Dementia describes a range of degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal dementia that all affect the brain and sadly get worse over time. With the expertise and empathy of our dedicated carers, we’ll ensure you have the right level of support for you whatever type of dementia you have.Request a callback Email us
Why dementia home care is a good option
For someone living with dementia, life can sometimes be confusing, uncertain and quite scary at times. Your senses may become distorted and your memory worsening, causing lots of anxiety and stress. But with dementia home care, we can help to relieve these worries and help you to ‘live well with dementia, rather than ‘suffer from’.
You won’t have to move into a nursing home and leave your loved ones and treasured possessions behind – you can get one-to-one support that is on your terms whilst you relax in the comfort of your own home. After all, our home is where we all should feel our most content, and this is even more important for someone with dementia.
Dementia care services tailored to you
Dementia care can start from as little as 30-minute visits throughout the week for support with domestic duties, shopping and making meals, giving you a chance to get used to the idea of having someone new in your home and building up a rapport with them. As time goes by, you or your loved ones may feel that you need more regular support throughout the day to pop in and check that you’re okay, perhaps helping with medication and personal care. What’s more, we can also support you in keeping up with your hobbies and visiting friends and family, so that you can continue to live life on your terms.
Towards the later stages of the condition, you may find that 24-hour live-in care is a more suitable option for your care needs. Having a carer live with you to constantly be on hand can bring some much needed peace of mind for all of you, particularly if your partner or spouse has dementia and you’re unable to provide all of the elements of care that they require. Furthermore, they get to stay in the place where they feel safe, comfortable and loved: their home.
