My mum, who has severe mixed dementia is post-stroke and very unsteady on her feet, lives with my husband and I. Due to a back problem myself, I needed assistance with showering Mum and also wanted to give Mum the opportunity to have a chat with other people, which she thoroughly enjoys. Of course, this has not been possible during lock-down (she’s been shielding since February) which has had a knock-on effect to her dementia which appears to have deteriorated.
The Alina Team have been wonderful, so helpful, kind and accommodating to Mum’s needs. Mum still likes to be in control and the carer comes around twice a week and helps Mum to shower and wash her hair wash. She helps Mum get dressed and after, sits and has a chat and a cup of tea and they have struck up a lovely friendship. Just this hour or so gives me respite and gives Mum a chance to have a good old natter.
The carer put Mum’s mind at rest from the first visit and is so thoughtful. Nothing is too much trouble for her.
