Our specialised Dementia Carers know all about the various types and stages of the condition.
Many changes occur with the onset of Dementia. Our experienced carers can help families cope with these daily challenges.
We aim to aid people living with dementia to remain in their own environment for as long as possible. We provide continuous professional development for our dementia carers to keep up to date with the latest knowledge in this area.
We work closely with external agencies to develop our training programmes, enabling us to better provide services for our clients, as well as on-going support for carers. Continuity of care is a crucial part of dementia care. We have a person centred approach to all cases.
Every individual with a diagnosis of dementia will have their own personal experience and will require an individual care package specifically tailored for their own personal needs as there are many forms of dementia.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia but there are many others including Vascular, Lewy Body and Frontal Temporal.
As a progressive illness the individual’s ability to make decisions and complete everyday tasks deteriorate over time. Our fully trained and experienced carers work with the families and individuals supporting them with the challenges faced with dementia. Research has shown that individuals who remain in the home and receive one on one support have benefited greatly.
Creating a safe, comfortable home environment that allows your parent, spouse, relative or friend to remain in a familiar and calm setting.
It is paramount for us that clients continue to maintain excellent quality of life. Our Motto is “move it or lose it”. With this in mind we try to get our clients out into the community and engaging in normal life activities for as long as possible. We feel this is key to living well with dementia. Staying in our familiar surroundings promotes continued good health and can help slow down and maintain this illness.
The difference between a good day and a bad day is often a familiar home environment and an experienced and skilled caregiver. Your loved ones comfort and safety is our focus. Many times, people with dementias communicate through non-verbal means, or have different and changing language skills. Our caregivers are experienced in connecting and communicating during the different stages of dementia.
We are committed to long-term carer client relationships. Most of our clients choose to have the same carer for years. Our consistent staffing allows your loved one to build a bond with our carers and think of us like family.
