Dementia Care At Home
Dementia is a term used to describe a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.
Memory loss is a common symptom. A change in routine or a change to a familiar environment can be daunting for someone living with dementia. More families than ever are now turning to home dementia care as an option rather than residential care homes. This allows their loved one to stay in familiar surroundings.
DETAILED DISCUSSION OF NEEDS
Every person has a specific set of needs to help them live with the condition. Each case must be assessed separately to ensure the right care is provided. Carers can visit from as little as once a day but can also increase to more full time support such as live in care.
PLANNING AHEAD AFTER DIAGNOSIS
Carers provide a consistency and familiar face to those living with dementia. They can also offer more than just personal care including , companionship and help with household tasks. Home dementia care allows an individual to remain as independent as possible by maintaining daily routines. This can be very important to someone living with dementia and can ease the strain on the family members.
