Why choose Dementia Care?

Regardless of symptoms or needs, we have the knowledge and skills to provide quality dementia care and support. We treat all our clients with compassion, respect and patience, to develop confidence and trust in us.

We build a professional relationship, understanding medical needs, routines and preferences to design a dementia care plan that is specific to each person and their way of life. Our staff are trained to notice mood and behavioural changes and can react flexibly and responsively to solve any discomfort or distress.

Learning a loved one has dementia can be a worrying and stressful time. Family members 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.

We believe receiving dementia home care helps to keep some continuity as other things change; 60% of people receiving home-care services are living with dementia.1 Leaving the beloved home filled with familiarity and memories can be unsettling at the best of times but can bring added concern to people living with dementia. Remaining at home surrounded by treasured things helps retain a connection with a familiar place; home is where we feel comfortable, safe and belong.

Quick Questions

What is dementia?

According to research carried out by the Alzheimer’s Society, 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia in the UK and the figures are predicted to rise.

Dementia is commonly mistaken as a condition. However, it’s an umbrella term that is used to describe a common set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. A person with dementia may also experience mood or behavioural changes. These changes can be small initially but increasingly can affect daily life.

However, dementia doesn’t mean someone is unable to do things for themselves but rather they just need some extra support, to help them adapt and learn how to live with dementia.

Is dementia home care better than a care home?

It depends on the level of care needed. Care at home allows people to stay in their own environment and doesn’t involve the distress and upset of moving. Change can be difficult but it’s particularly challenging for those with dementia.

However, if the level of daily care needed is significant it may be safer and appropriate to consider a care home where specialist resources and nursing care are available.

When should I start looking for dementia care?

It’s recommended that if someone with dementia is not able to live safely independently or as dementia progresses, then it’s the right time to start looking into care arrangements.

About our dementia carers…

Team of dementia Care Workers

Dementia Care is highly personal and dependent on needs. Every person is unique and so is their dementia experience. Our job is to find and understand the best way to support each person living with dementia. We achieve this by ensuring each of our carers receive advanced training to support the person, not the diagnosis because we believe dementia care is a specialist skill.

We also endeavour to match our care teams to clients based on any mutual hobbies or interests, as well as their skill level, to lay the foundations for solid relationships. We invest our time to ensure every dementia home care experience is of the highest quality and a positive one.

It doesn’t matter how much or how little help you need. 

We support you to make life easier.
