Dementia Home Care
For a person living with dementia, even the slightest change in routine or environment can result in the person feeling disorientated and frightened. Because of this, more and more families are considering the option of a specialist dementia home care package for their loved one.
Fambridge Care have extensive knowledge and experience in caring for people with dementia and have local carers who can provide care at home for clients with dementia. We understand that caring for an older person with dementia can be particularly challenging and it is important that family carers receive support and regular breaks for themselves, so they can work, care for children or just have time to get a rest.
Caring for People with Dementia
Whether you need care on a part- or full-time basis to help look after someone living with dementia, we can provide a care package that works specifically for you. Our carers are trained in dementia care to help support your loved one in the best way and encourage them to maintain important skills and abilities – assisting them with shopping and gardening as well as ensuring they are drinking and eating enough, and helping to maintain personal hygiene with all care provided in a caring and compassionate way.
We can provide respite care or live-in dementia care, providing as much support as you need to care for your loved one.
Live In Dementia Care
Fambridge Care can provide live-in dementia care to ensure your loved one is cared for around the clock, whether you need assistance in your home, you live away from your family member or need full time assistance due to your own work or family commitments we are ready and able to assist.
Our carer can support you by ensuring tasks such as cleaning and cooking are taken care of, ensuring medication is taken, supporting with daily living tasks such as shopping and accompanying your loved one to social events and dementia friendly activities to help keep their mind active.
Our carers can provide care at any stage of dementia diagnosis, they are fully trained and will aim to try and support an active mind by encouraging your family member to participate in activities they enjoy such as gardening or other hobbies. If the individual requires more advanced care, our carers can encourage them to remember to eat and drink, providing finger food if motor skills have declined.
Our carers will maintain the dignity of your loved one at all times when care is provided, ensuring that they remember to use the toilet, drink enough fluids and maintain a balanced and nutritious diet. A dementia carer should be sensitive and caring with the emphasis on ensuring that the client always feels reassured and safe in their own home.
A live-in carer provides companionship as well as care and we will aim to match a carer based on your loved one’s personality and interests. We feel that it is important for there to be a good rapport between carer and client from the outset.
Caring For People with Dementia
Our care package can be as flexible as you require, and you can receive as much or as little care assistance as you need. If you are caring for someone with dementia, it is important that when required, you seek support and respite care in order to maintain your own mental health and wellbeing. We are happy to have an informal chat to discuss the possible care options with you.
Both home & live-in care options are often far more affordable than you might think and these care options ensure that your family member can continue to be looked after in the safe and familiar surroundings of home.
