What is Dementia Care?

Dementia Care is a type of support available to help you or your loved one manage the symptoms of dementia. This includes everything from medication reminders to help going to the bathroom, or simply providing a friendly face when you need it.

If your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, you may find they need extra support with daily life at home. We believe receiving Dementia Home Care helps keep some continuity as other things change.

Leaving the beloved home filled with familiarity and memories can be unsettling at the best of times but can bring added concern to a loved one living with dementia. Remaining at home surrounded by treasured things where your loved one can continue their usual routines can promote feelings of comfort and safety.

Your home. Your care. Your choice.

Live-in Care is a great solution for people who are struggling to cope with the impacts of dementia or if their dementia has progressed. Care is provided 24/7 in the home, where your loved one often feels the most safe and comfortable. This provides peace of mind, knowing there is someone there to provide care at all times.

One of our specially trained Care Workers will move in with your loved one and help them with daily tasks and assist them with managing their routines.

What are the advantages of Dementia Home Care?

Learning that a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia can be a worrying and stressful time. Relatives are often untrained or unable to support someone with dementia. Others might not have a full understanding of what dementia is like to live with. Here are some of the advantages to Home Care for dementia:

Familiarity

Home Care and Live-in Care for dementia allow your loved one to stay in the comfort of their home and continue their daily routines. This reduces the stress and disruption moving may bring to someone with dementia.

Independence

Dementia Home Care allows your loved one to not only continue their usual routine but stay in control of it. Care will regularly be assessed and adapted to meet their changing needs and personal goals.

Stay Local

Change can be hard, especially for someone with dementia. Home Care allows your loved one to stay in the community they know and love where they can enjoy local events and familiar faces.

Respite

Home Carers for dementia offer caregivers regular time off. This allows you to take a well deserved break and dedicate time for yourself knowing your loved one’s needs are being taken care of.

Reassurance

Our Dementia Carers offer friendly and comforting companionship. They don’t just take care of you and your loved one’s physical needs but also any emotional needs and their mental wellbeing.

Safety

Often, Home Care is safer than a care home. Research proves people living in a care home are three times more likely to have a fall compared to living at home, increasing the likeliness of a hospital admission.1


Family & Community

People in care homes can often feel lonely and depressed. This is more so common with people with dementia. Staying at home means friends and family can visit whenever which can make them feel safer and happier.


Cost Effective

Dementia Home Care can often be more cost effective. With our Dementia Live-in Care, the care you receive is one to one which is often not the case in care homes and they’re usually a more expensive option.


What to expect from Dementia Care at home

Our Dementia Care service is provided by Dementia Carers in the comfort and familiarity of the home. They will help your loved one with their needs to help them to live as independently as possible for as long as possible.

From preparing balanced meals to light household chores, or even just being a friendly face to pop in for a chat. At Alina Homecare, we make life easier.

Is it right for me?

Is dementia home care better than a care home?

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, deciding between a care home or home care can be challenging. You want to make sure you’re making the right decision whilst keeping their best interests at heart. Ultimately, it depends on the level of care needed to meet the needs of the individual living with dementia.

Dementia Home Care allows people to stay in their familiar environment where they often feel the most comfortable and doesn’t involve the distress and upset of moving. Change can be difficult for a lot of people, but it’s particularly challenging and disruptive for those with dementia.

If you feel your loved one would benefit from remaining in their own home but requires 24 hour support, our Live-in Care is a great option. A Live-in Dementia Carer will move in with your loved one to provide round the clock care, whenever it is needed.

However, if the level of care is significant for your loved one with dementia, it may be safer and more appropriate to consider a care home where specialist resources and nursing care are available.

How do I find a dementia carer?

Our Carers are friendly, approachable and ready to help each client to live as independently as possible. At Alina Homecare, our Dementia Carers have received excellent training from our award nominated Alina Homecare Academy to provide high quality and respectful care.

Find your local Alina Homecare Team today to learn more.

When should I start looking for Dementia Care?

It’s recommended that if someone with dementia is not able to live safely independently as their dementia progresses, then it’s the right time to start looking into care arrangements. Depending on how much a loved one’s dementia is impacting their ability to live independently, there are different care options you can choose.

Understandably, this can be a challenging decision. If you’d like to talk through your options and learn more about the services we can offer, find your local Alina Homecare Team.

How can I care for someone with dementia at home?

Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging and overwhelming, especially if you have no prior experience. You want to ensure a routine is maintained and that they are comfortable and safe.

Because of this, a lot of people choose Home Care or Live-in Care for their loved one with dementia. In fact, 60% of people who receive Home Care also have dementia.2 If you wish for your loved one to remain at home but they need some extra support, a Home Carer for dementia can help.
