Important: Homecare - A safe option during COVID-19

Better dementia care for a better life

Dementia home care – providing a better quality of life

A recent study showed that 85% of people would like to remain in their own homes for as long as possible if diagnosed with dementia.

Most people with dementia will eventually need specialist dementia home care if they are to remain within the comfort of their own familiar surroundings. We know that dementia can seem like a challenging issue to face for families, but with the right professional care and support, individuals with dementia can still enjoy an active, happy and fulfilling life in their home. 

Dementia care at home is often an overlooked alternative when considering care options, yet it is a viable and often preferable choice for many people with dementia when compared to moving into a care home. 

That’s where Trinity Homecare comes in, we provide homecare that is rated as outstanding by the CQC. If necessary, we can provide 24 hour home care for dementia patients. Trinity Homecare’s mission is to provide outstanding dementia home care services for those who wish to remain in their home. 

Live-in dementia care

We have a full range of services that are flexible to your exact needs. For those looking for round the clock support; we offer live-in dementia care services where a caring companion will provide specialist dementia home care in your own home. Our round the clock care helps support you whenever you need it as our carers are on hand by your side. 

Dementia home care visits

For those who require less assistance and want to maintain their independence, we offer daily home care for dementia patients. We can then check up on you as much or as little as you would like. This allows us to provide heartfelt dementia care in your home, whether that be once per week or multiple times per day.

Benefits of dementia home care vs going into a home:

Homecare:

  • Remain living in the familiar surroundings of your own home
  • Maintain your routines
  • TrinityCarers who have received specialist training will be on hand whenever you need them
  • Better value for money than a care home 
  • Proactive encouragement and support to continue living an enriched lifestyle
  • Complete emotional support for yourself and your loved ones
  • Peace of mind for you and your loved ones
  • One-to-one personalised care
  • Reassurance –  regular reviews to make sure you have the right support
  • Outstanding rated dementia care in your own home 
  • Safer than a care home with fewer falls and hospital admissions

Care home: 

  • Moving into an unfamiliar environment 
  • Leaving pets, friends, family and loved ones 
  • Leaving the comfort and familiarity of home and the memories within it 
  • Changing routines and lifestyle
  • Care home carers have many other patients to look after
  • Higher amount of falls for dementia patients 
  • Care homes lead to more emergency admissions into hospitals

Receiving dementia care in your home holds many advantages over a care home, particularly for those with dementia. Home care offers one-to-one, personalised care in which a carer can provide you assistance at every opportunity. This is safer, leads to fewer hospital admissions, and helps the dementia patient remain around familiar memories and familiar surroundings. 

The highest standards of dementia care in your own home 

As you get older, and particularly with a diagnosis of dementia, memories become precious. Having a carer who understands the condition means you don’t need to pack up those memories into a tiny care home room, you can stay in your own home where you feel comfortable and familiar, knowing you will be supported by a trusted, understanding carer. 

Here at Trinity, our mission is to help individuals and their families live well with dementia. Having a carer who understands exactly how to be with someone who has the condition, creates a supportive environment for the individual to retain a sense of independence and well-being.

When should someone with dementia go into a care home?

There are a range of care options available you can consider before the thought of a care home. In mild cases, daily visiting care can be the best option to provide care in your own home. Whilst in severe cases, live-in dementia care can provide a heartfelt helping hand with round the clock assistance.
