Find quality Dementia Care in the comfort of your home.
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 day-to-day 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.
Why Choose Dementia Care?
Home Care Workers can help guide your loved one with dementia through their symptoms to improve their quality of life. They can be a highly valuable part of your loved one’s care plan when help at home is needed.

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:
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.
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.
Change can be hard, especially for someone with dementia. Home Care allows your loved one to stay in their community community they know and love where they can enjoy local events and familiar faces.
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.
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 well-being.
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.
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 which are usually a more expensive option.

“My Father has been receiving lunchtime visits from Alina Homecare for a few months now. He has Alzheimer’s and can sometimes be confused and a little difficult.

“My Dad was 97 when Alina Homecare Andover first came to provide 24 hour in-home care. They were a revelation in compassionate and empathetic assistance as he quickly declined into dementia. In his final days, doing those personal jobs that needed doing whilst the shell that had been my Dad declined they excelled and…”
“We are delighted with the service provided by Alina Homecare. Their professional and caring approach has been evident in every single contact that any member of the family has had with them.

“I am very pleased with the care service my Mother has received so far. The carers are professional in their manner and very friendly to her. They engage her in conversation which I feel is important as she has dementia. If they complete their tasks before the allotted time period ends they ask if there is anything else required. They all have their own…”
“Since early 2021, Alina Homecare has provided home care for our 79-year-old Mum who has dementia. We were anxious initially with no prior experience but the service has been exceptional.

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, 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.
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.
Call your local Alina Homecare Team today to find out more.
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 find out more about the services we can offer, have a chat with a member of our helpful Team.
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.
