Our compassionate, person-centred dementia care is tailored to the needs and characteristics of your loved one
We help people live their own
life through the struggle of dementia.
We are able to provide high quality dementia home care services that support a range of conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.
We have provided care services for people with dementia for over thirty years, and we see over and over again that care at home in memorable surroundings offers better quality of life, a great deal of comfort and a sense of safety and familiarity.
This is especially true for people living with dementia and crucially, being cared for at home reduces the need for disruption and change which can cause such anguish.
We give our carers specialist dementia care training so we can provide the flexibility, expertise and support to help families adjust and adapt to the changing needs of someone living with dementia.

The world of care can often seem daunting and complex – we’re here to be help you through it.
Dementia care tailored to your needs
Our compassionate, person-centred dementia care is tailored around the needs and characteristics of your loved one to offer:
We select a small team of dementia carers who work on rotation, so our clients always have the comfort of a familiar face.
We never lose sight of the person behind the dementia. It’s why a large part of our assessment process focuses on their personality, history, hobbies, likes, dislikes, hopes and fears.
One of the most important aspects of successful dementia care is to work with the person being cared for, to ensure they can remain independent. We encourage all our clients to carry on doing the things they can do for themselves but we are there to help when they come across something they can’t do.
This, and a caring attitude are key to successfully caring for someone living with dementia. These qualities are emphasised and grown throughout our training programme so that our clients are treated as people first and foremost. Carers are asked to think “how would I like it if it were me?” and to think about their client properly, using their imagination and the techniques we teach them, to really understand what the client wants.
Our clients all like to live their own life, with the aid of one of our dementia carers just to help them manage any areas they struggle with. Because all clients living with dementia are unique, no two days or two people are the same, so our carers are flexible and able to think on their feet to deal with anything that might occur.
Specialist dementia care in your own home
We invest heavily in our dementia training programme and carers are required to take an intensive residential course before working with our clients who have dementia. It is the most in-depth course of its kind in the country, so you can be confident you will have the best carers for your loved ones.
Our live-in dementia care training gives carers an in-depth knowledge into the different types of dementia, how it affects the brain and how to recognise and help manage the symptoms. These can include sundowning, ‘wandering’ or, to give it our preferred term, ‘walking with a purpose’ as this is usually the case, medication and nutrition.
Dementia carers also benefit from an invaluable interactive element – our own ‘Dementia Experience Room’ helps them feel what a client living with dementia may experience. Our training also focuses on other ways to support someone living with dementia, such as using music, validation, reminiscence and other therapies. We cover a broad range of subjects to equip our carers with an effective understanding of how to care for and deal with the challenges dementia brings.
All carers and head office staff attend the Dementia Friends Project run by Alzheimer’s Society to gain a greater understanding of this complex condition.
