FAQs & Further Information
There may come a time when a person living with dementia will need support to live their life to the quality that they deserve and that they are used to. People in the early stages of dementia may not need ‘around-the-clock’ support but may need some assistance in areas where they struggle such as their night-time routine or preparing meals.
People in the mid-range of dementia may need consistent support throughout the day but will be fine left to their own devices during the night while they sleep.
People who are suffering in the later stages of dementia may require 24-hour support to live as comfortably as possible as they will need assistance with all aspects of living at home including domestic chores, meal preparation, personal care, shopping etc.
If you have identified a need for a loved one to receive support from a care company, we will gladly pay you a visit and get the ball rolling with a free care assessment.
Although home care is not absolutely necessary for people living with dementia, we would advise it. Experienced carers are a valuable asset in identifying changes and ‘red flags’ in a client’s behaviour and condition. A carer will be able to assist and adapt with a client and their needs, they will also be able to identify if a client’s needs change at all and assist with the introduction of said changes.
Carers are also key in improving mood, decreasing agitation, building relationships and overall improving a client’s well-being. A carer can be a great relief for families as they will be able to take some of the weight from dedicated relative’s shoulders.
Alzheimer’s disease progressively destroys brain cells over time, so during the early stages of dementia, many do recognize something is wrong, but not everyone is aware. They may know they are supposed to recognize you, but they can’t.
Overall and generally speaking, we dedicate our service to easing life for Dementia patients. Pointing out moments in which they are confused will cause further stress and won’t be progressive in a caring environment.
Even if they don’t understand their error, correcting them may embarrass or be otherwise unpleasant for them. It’s never a good idea to argue with a person who has dementia. First of all, you can’t win. And second, it will probably upset them or even make them angry.
Our Homecare service is carried out by specialists that are highly experienced and trained in aiding those suffering from dementia and fulfil the requirements of those in need to maximum efficiency.
It’s common for people with Alzheimer’s disease to stop eating or drinking in the later stages. At any time, about 10% to 15% of people who have it don’t eat or drink enough and lose weight. This becomes more of a problem as the disease gets worse.
Our carers are highly trained in aiding those suffering from Dementia and encouraging them to follow a healthy and balanced diet. They can also make a referral to a SALT specialist to get further support.
