Why dementia home care is a good option
Dementia is a degenerative condition that sadly, will gradually get worse over time. But with home care from our dedicated team in Solihull, we can assist you to come to terms with your diagnosis and help you to maintain your routines and independence at home.
Dementia home care is very much about promoting and facilitating life on your terms – whether that’s ensuring your house is free of trip hazards, helping you to keep in touch with friends or assisting you to get your weekly groceries from the local supermarket. We will work with you to create a support plan that is tailored to your needs so that you have choice over what you do and when you do it, instead of being prescribed set meal times, menus or activities. What’s more, if you’re living with a partner, spouse or pets, you can continue to stay with them instead of leaving them behind for a care home.
Dementia care services tailored to you
With dementia home care from our Solihull team, everything is very much created around you and for you, so that you have the freedom, flexibility and choice of what you do and when you do it. For those in the earlier stages of the condition, you may find that you need several visits a week to help you around the home to make sure it’s clean and tidy, taking your dog for a walk and preparing meals, all whilst making sure you’re okay and well.
As time goes by and your symptoms develop further, you will most likely need additional support at home that is more regular and thorough to help with daily living such as personal care, toileting needs, administering medication and maintaining a healthy diet. An ideal option for this type of more intensive support is live-in care, where a carer will live with you in your home instead of you moving into residential care, giving both you and your loved ones constant reassurance that you have 24-hour care at home.
