Dementia has a huge emotional, social, and practical 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 the condition, plenty can be done to help manage the symptoms and ensure that if you’re living with dementia you are able to continue living happily, safely and independently.
The symptoms of dementia vary greatly from person to person and can change rapidly as the illness progresses. We make sure that you have the right level of care and support, from someone who has been specifically trained in dementia care. Our Richmond carers will provide a completely unique care plan that has been tailored to your loved one’s exact needs. This will be continually adapted as and when their requirements change, to make sure that they are receiving the highest quality care at all times.
Dementia can be a very challenging condition to live with, especially when your close relative or loved one is suffering from it. Having care at home instead of in residential care is extremely beneficial for lots of reasons.
• Maintaining a consistent routine – this is vital for a person living with dementia; any changes can cause a significant amount of stress. This is why our carers always work to stick to the routine that your loved one is familiar with.
• Upholds your independence as much as possible – Receiving support at home means that your loved one does not have to go through the often stressful procedure of moving into an unfamiliar residential care home and can continue living life on their own terms.
• One to one care – Not only is continuity of routine important, but of person too. Home care allows you to build up a relationship with your local care team as you will have continuity and consistency. Being in a care home
If you are looking for a visit or two a day or continuous live-in care you can be assured that our dedicated dementia carers will be on hand to help whenever you need them.
