We know that dementia can seem like a challenging issue to face for families. With the right professional care and support, individuals with dementia can still enjoy an active, happy and fulfilling life in their homes.
Help to carry out personal and household tasks so that you or your loved one can retain a good quality of life. With different types of care available, our daily personal care services are completely tailored to you. Whether you need us once a week or multiple times throughout the day.
Companionship care is a perfect solution for anyone who doesn’t necessarily need personal care. However, they would benefit from regular visits from a friendly face who has an active and genuine interest in their well-being.
Transferring care responsibilities in times of need. As respite care providers, we ensure those who rely on care still receive the heartfelt support they need when their current carer cannot be by their side.
Offering both visiting care and live-in care options around the UK. We provide heartfelt care at home for those who need it the most. Home-based palliative care is just one type of care that we can provide alongside other social care professionals, dependent on your individual needs.
With intermediate care we aid rehabilitation, support and care for individuals who have been in hospital and require additional care before returning to full, independent living.
Body weakness, poor eyesight, imbalance, medications, and household hazards can all contribute to seniors’ falling. This can have life-changing effects. Unsteadiness, holding onto furniture, unexplained bruising or wounds, as well as having a few ‘near falls’ or becoming accident-prone are all signs that help is needed.
In addition to increasing a senior’s risk of mortality, isolation can have a negative impact on a senior’s health and contribute to the development of dementia, depression and cognitive decline. Signs can include becoming less active and sociable than usual, increased irritability, changing sleep patterns, or withdrawing from communications and activities that were once enjoyed.
If a once tidy house is cluttered and dirty, bills are unpaid, or the fridge is full of rotten food, it could be a sign that it’s time to get help. Whether due to mobility limitations or changes in cognition, it is common for older adults to find that household chores, planning, and organisation become more challenging or even unsafe.
Any deterioration in personal hygiene and grooming habits is worth noting as a possible sign that home care is needed. Dirty and untidy hair, unbrushed teeth, dirty clothes, body odour, and dirty hands and nails are warning signs that personal care has become too much of a challenge without assistance.
Increased forgetfulness is one of the most common signs that help is needed. Skipping medication, missing appointments, or having difficulty recalling basic knowledge like the date or time, are all signs that someone needs help.
If you notice food goes uneaten, or sudden weight gain or weight loss, it could indicate: a loss of interest in food due to appetite changes, difficulty preparing food due to cognitive decline, forgetting to eat, loss of ability to go food shopping or prepare meals.
Wandering or getting lost is a common symptom for people living with dementia. Common signs to look out for include: returning from a regular walk or drive later than usual, forgetting how to get to familiar places, talking about fulfilling historical obligations (such as going to work), wanting to “go home” even when at home, becoming restless, pacing or making repetitive movements.
