Dementia care in your own home

Continue Living at Home

 

In-home care enables elderly people with dementia to continue living at home, remaining in familiar surroundings, but with access to all the day-to-day support they need.  With the high-quality dementia home care we provide, there is no need for someone living with dementia to move into a care home. Our tailored in-home service revolves entirely around our clients and what is best for them.

Caring for someone with dementia is time consuming and for someone with more complex dementia, an hour or two a day will be unlikely to solve any problems. We know that very often a lot more input than normal is required to take care of individuals with dementia, but the rewards are there when a care package is put together with the sole aim of providing a client with the company and care they need, not just to live well, but to thrive!  We are specialists in this area and we can work closely with you, to help you learn more about what sort of care will be required.

Dementia care is a huge part of what we do

 

Dementia covers a range of different symptoms and generally defines a decline in mental ability severe enough to affect daily life. The most common types of dementia include Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s diseases.

Because we specialise in caring for older people, care for clients with dementia is a huge part of our expertise and forms a significant part of our business. Caring for someone with dementia is complex, can be unpredictable, and requires endless amounts of love, patience, kindness, creativity and a thick skin. It also requires a lot more intensive care management.

We also know that it can take a significant toll emotionally, physically and sometimes financially on family members. We want to hold your hand through the journey providing the support you need along the way. Talk to us today to find out more about how we can help.

There are only a few things in our line of work more rewarding than seeing our clients with dementia live out their lives to the full, in complete happiness and contentment, as a result of robust, reliable and consistent care arrangements. We also find great satisfaction in seeing the positive effect it has on families too, who, with a care arrangement in place, can enjoy spending quality time with a loved one. We know that building long term and meaningful relationships with clients and their families is crucial to successful care.

All our care staff have cars and love to take clients out and about to explore and help keep your loved ones mind active and engaged.

Elderly Dementia Care Costs

Supporting someone with dementia is always going to be more costly, as the level of support they typically need is quite high.

However, supporting someone at home with dementia care is often no more expensive than the average cost of a care home. This often means that the decision about how to best support someone does not need to be financially driven, but can be made simple on what the family feels is going to be best for them. We are always happy to offer our help and advice in this area, and even provide advice about looking at options for residential care – everything taken into account is deemed the right way forward. In fact, we have even written up a guide in our knowledge centre with tips for looking at care homes.

Caring for someone with dementia is not something to be taken lightly and needs careful discussion and planning. Get in touch to see how we can help.
