Dementia Care

Years of experience and training has shown us that a blanket approach for people with dementia doesn’t work.

It is important to understand dementia from the point of view of the person and recognise that although dementia essentially presents as various forms of cognitive impairment, there is real emotion attached to what they are experiencing and how their reality is.

Our carers will treat their client as an equal adult without patronising them or infantilising them. They understand that behavioural issues are caused by the dementia and not the person acting out, and they never take it personally!

Speak To Us

The beauty of live in care is the one to one communication and relationship that develops between the carer and the person with dementia, there is no limit on time or patience, there are no other people to “tend to”.

PROVIDING CARE FOR THOSE WITH DEMENTIA

There are many forms of dementia, but at different times they can all result in anger, frustration, depression, anxiety and mood swings that influences behaviour. Our carers are skilled at alleviating these feelings by a variety of methods, such as breaking down complex tasks into smaller manageable steps with gentle guidance – careful not to overwhelm with instructions.

Reassurance without cloying or crowding is key to reducing anxiety. Getting to know our clients, their likes and dislikes is important when something causes a person with dementia to be upset. Sometimes there are patterns, such as time of day etc which enables carers to predict when mood problems may arise and how to avoid them and what soothes the person.  Distracting, refocusing, re-directing conversation away from something that is causing upset. Structuring sentences to demonstrate that you are respecting their feelings and not brushing over them is also key.
