Dementia Carereassurance, familiarity and consistency
We know how very difficult it can be when a loved one is diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer’s. The progression of the disease can be distressing to both the client and their family, and difficult to understand.
A person living with dementia needs a great deal of reassurance, support and the right to enjoy a high quality of life. Moving to a care facility can often be more distressing, and staying in surroundings that they are familiar with can be extremely beneficial.
A live in carer can make it possible for dementia care in the home, helping people feel secure and supported, with reassurance and consistency. Reassurance is not only important for the individual, it can also help you feel comfortable with your loved one remaining safely in their own home.
Our Live in Dementia Care Service
We have wonderful live in carers who are qualified in mental health or highly trained and experienced in caring for all aspects of mental health especially people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. They have a good understanding of the different stages the disease takes and will offer support, reassurance and encouragement along with patience and kindness.
A live in carer is also a friend and companion who will:
- Assist with shopping and outdoor trips, social visits and activities
- Deal with the housekeeping and household management
- Support with cognitive and memory issues
- Be a good listener
- Offer confidence and encouragement
If you have concerns about a loved one who needs care at home, or would like more information about our Dementia/Alzheimer’s Care service, please call 01179 860710 and one of our friendly consultants will be able to help you.
Living with dementia can be difficult and challenging for both the individual and for family and friends. However, with many people now opting for live-in care over care homes, it is important to understand how a home can be adapted to make it a dementia-friendly environment.
