What is dementia care?

Dementia care involves specialised support and assistance for individuals living with dementia. Dementia is a general term for a decline in cognitive function that affects daily living. While Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form, numerous other types exist. Caring for someone with dementia presents practical and emotional challenges. Symptoms can vary but often include:

  • Communication difficulties: Clients may have trouble expressing themselves or understanding others, leading to frustration and miscommunication.
  • Behavioural changes: Dementia can cause agitation, aggression, wandering or other challenging behaviours.
  • Memory loss and confusion: People often experience memory loss and confusion.
  • Personal care challenges: Individuals may need help with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing and toileting.
  • Safety concerns: Dementia can impair judgement and increase the risk of accidents or wandering.

Our dementia home care services focus on enhancing quality of life and promoting independence whilst enabling clients to remain in the comfort of their own homes. We offer personalised care plans designed to meet the evolving needs of each individual, delivered by our team of trained professionals.

How to care for someone with dementia

Caring for someone with dementia requires patience, understanding and specialised knowledge. Our experienced team focuses on creating a familiar and supportive environment. We implement strategies to manage symptoms and promote engagement in meaningful activities. From assistance with daily tasks to emotional support and companionship, we’re committed to providing comprehensive care that enhances quality of life.

Here are some of the care strategies our caregivers use to help a person with dementia:

  • Creating a safe and familiar environment: we work to simplify the home environment, making routine tasks easier and removing potential hazards.
  • Maintaining routines: we put regular routines for meals, activities and sleep in place to provide a predictable, comforting home life.
  • Experience: we are familiar with the different types of dementia, how it affects someone and its progression.
  • Promoting engagement: we encourage involvement in external groups and activities they enjoy to promote socialising and general wellbeing.
  • Family Support: we can signpost other resources and support groups for families and caregivers.

When should someone with dementia go into a care home?

Deciding whether to move a loved one with dementia into a care home is a deeply personal and often challenging decision. Many people assume a care home is the only option, but 85% of people with dementia would like to remain at home. It is entirely possible to enjoy an active, happy and fulfilling life surrounded by home comforts, familiar surroundings and memories with dementia home care.

Staying in a familiar environment can reduce anxiety and confusion as the client remains in a familiar environment. Living surrounded by household memories can also improve cognitive function, helping to reduce memory loss. In the early stages of dementia, this can have many positive effects. With home care, you can remain at home with your nearest and dearest whilst our carers provide for you.

Our team is here to support families through this process, offering guidance, information and reassurance every step of the way. Contact us today to learn more about our home care services and how we can help you and your loved one thrive.

Can a patient with dementia refuse care?

Individuals with dementia may experience changes in cognition and decision-making capacity, impacting their ability to make informed choices about their care. While respecting their autonomy and dignity is essential, there may be situations where a person cannot understand or communicate their preferences effectively.

  • If they retain mental capacity, their decision to refuse care must be respected unless it poses a risk to themselves or others.
  • In cases where they lack the capacity to make informed decisions, a legal guardian
    or other appointed decision-maker may need to take over, acting in their best

In such cases, we can work closely with families and healthcare professionals to make decisions in the client’s best interests, prioritising their safety, wellbeing and quality of life.
