Dementia & Alzheimers Care
Delivering specialised home care to help both individuals with dementia or Alzheimers and their families manage their condition.
Each person is unique and will experience dementia in their own way. The varying types of dementia also tend to affect people differently, especially in the early stages. How well someone can live with dementia can also be affected by how other people respond to them and the environment around them. A person with dementia will have cognitive symptoms (to do with thinking or memory).That is why it is so important that each customer receives professional care, delivered by trained and knowledgeable staff as well as respect and kindness.
Far too many times, people with dementia find themselves pigeonholed, often losing their identity, when in fact, each is an individual and it is only dementia they have in common. Sometimes care will be of a practical nature, help with getting up, washing or dressing or perhaps help with meals, laundry and ironing. But it may be about going out to the shops, or a walk in the park or a visit to relatives or friends.
A service for family carers
Many people with dementia are looked after on a day to day basis by a spouse or other family member. But caring relatives need a break from time to time and this is where our ‘sitting service’ can help. On an arranged day each week we will come and take over the role – allowing the family member much needed time to themselves. Live-in care is also available.
Exemplar Homecare holds regular training updates for its care workers. This ensures that our staff are up to date with the latest information and understand the practical and emotional aspects of caring for people with dementia.
Personalised dementia care visits
Care visits are usually 30 minutes to an hour long. However, there is no upper time limit for our care visits.
