Care Dementia Patients

If you notice a friend, loved one or yourself increasingly becoming forgetful then it may be wise to talk to your GP about you or your concerns for them as these may be early dementia stages and you may be progressing towards Alzheimer’s disease or generally vascular dementia.

The National Health Service (NHS) defines dementia as a syndrome associated with an ongoing decline of brain functioning.

As Dementia affects an individual’s mental abilities, affected people find planning and organising difficult. A person with Dementia will therefore often or usually need help from friends and/or relatives as maintaining their independence becomes a problem.

Our Staff are Dementia Care trained and all highly experienced Caregivers are available 24/7 to assist you and/or support your family to manage this situation.


How do I know its Dementia?

You would obviously need to consult your GP before coming to the conclusion that you need dementia care as patients will not be in a position to diagonose which dementia stages they may be at or whether or not it is vascular dementia or even otherwise. It is especially important to act quickly if you notice any or some of the problems listed below as it is strongly adviseable to do so sooner rather than later. 

Related problems may include:

Memory Loss, Reduced thinking speed, Lowered mental sharpness and agility, Language , Understanding, Judgement, Mood, Movement, Difficulty carrying out daily tasks


Post Hospital Care

Returning from hospital most often means that you you are happy to come home to familier surroundings however the reality may be that you find yourself needing help and/or suppport to complete daily chores for sometime until you get back to full recovery. 

So whether you have had an incident or accident, trauma, plastic or major surgery, child birth or any other procedure that means you need someone around to run some errands for a short period; our experienced and compassionate post hospital care givers are available and happy to support you through this period until you get back on your feet. We will listen and carry out your home health care wishes covering your support needs ranging from domestic household chores like tidying, cleaning and cooking healthy meals through to grocery shopping and that visit to your pharmacy or GP.



For how long a period can I take out post hopital care?

Post Hospital care support is individualised and depends on two factors namely your current health condition and your support requirements. We will meet with you, your family or one responsible for your home health care and discuss a support package that suits you and covers your support needs for a time agreed by you or until you can get on your feet again. This package will then be revised along the way as you gradually get back to full heath.

Does the carer have to live in my house?

Yes. At least somewhere on your premises.

Live in care is an option that may be most suited to service users whose care needs imply that they are best cared for in their own home if they have someone around with them 24/7. This translates in the need to have some spare room to house the live in carer within the premises at distances where they can quickly and effectively be of assistance when needed even during the night.
