Our support approach to living with dementia at home.
JR is a lady living in a small village with really good community involvement. She is living with the early stages of dementia but is managing well in her own home. In order to keep her at home and safe, we visit each day to ensure that she is eating well, taking her medication correctly and escorting her to appointments when necessary. It is important for JR to visit the hairdressers every week so we take her and bring her home. Continuing life as they have always done is very important to people living with dementia to and helps to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing for as long as possible.
SB is a gentleman living with advanced dementia. We spend three hours with SB in the afternoons to offer him stimulation and give his wife time and space to recharge her batteries. Having time out and looking after the main carer is a must in order to keep a situation like this running well.
Depending on our Clients’ requirements we offer a range of person-centered tailor-made services:-
- Companionship and Getting Out
- Dignified and Personal Care
- Practical and Comfortable Living
Each service offers a comprehensive and diverse range of activities that can take place at home or in the community for just a few hours a week or on a daily basis.
