As a close family member you may well be making the difficult decision of choosing care for someone affected by dementia. We would like to assist you in making the best possible choice.
Throughout the varying stages of dementia we are able to provide the necessary support to help people stay living at home, safely and independently, for as long as possible.
By assessing people's physical, personal and emotional needs we are able to design a package of care to meet specific requirements. After the initial enquiry we will carry out a home visit to assess the individual's needs and the level of care required. During this meeting a person-centred Care Plan will be drawn up and agreed, taking into account the person's life history and experiences, their likes and dislikes and individual skills and abilities.
The relationship formed with home care staff is fundamental to person-centred care. It is therefore essential that the staff who undertake this work are skilled and experienced in supporting people living with dementia.
We constantly monitor and review the care needs of each person to ensure that they receive the right level of support at all times. We keep in close contact with family members to inform them of any changes to the support provided. We also liaise closely with other health professionals such as Community Psychiatric Nurses, District Nurses, Occupational Therapists and GPs. Working together with other health professionals promotes good practice and ensures a positive outcome for the person receiving care.
Care and Support
Our carers can assist with a variety of tasks including medication, personal care, meal preparation, shopping, laundry, pet care and general domestic tasks. From one visit a day to full 24 hour care we provide the necessary support to help people stay in their own homes, thereby reducing any risk to their safety and wellbeing. Respite care can also be provided to enable the primary carer to have a holiday or additional support whenever needed.
Continuity of Care
We understand the importance of providing carers who have experience and who are trained and knowledgeable in dementia care. We are also aware of the many benefits that a regular carer can offer. Our aim is to provide continuity of care whilst helping to maintain a safe, secure and stable living environment.
Finding the right level of support can be a difficult process. Our managers have a wealth of experience in providing this type of specialist care and would be happy to offer advice or answer any questions you may have.
