Dementia Care​

We offer tailored home care services to support families and their loved ones to live well with dementia

Dementia home care

We provide high quality dementia home care services to support a range of conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.

With over 30 years’ experience in providing dementia care services, we know 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.

Our carers receive specialist dementia care training to provide flexibility, expertise and support to help families adjust and adapt to the changing needs of someone living with dementia.

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:

Continuity – we select a small team of carers who work on rotation providing our clients with the comfort of a familiar face.

Personality – We never lose sight of the person behind the dementia. That’s why a large part of our assessment process focuses on your loved one’s personality, history, hobbies, likes, dislikes, hopes and fears.

Empowerment – 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.

Empathy – We know that empathy and a caring attitude are key to the success of 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.

Specialist dementia caregivers in your own home

Good carers are essential to improve the life quality of those living with dementia and to ease the load and provide respite for family members. We invest heavily in our dementia training programme and in selecting carers who are required to take an intensive residential course before working with our clients under the dementia umbrella. This is the most in-depth course of its kind in the country so you can be confident we provide the best carers for your loved ones. There isn’t a typical day for a person living with dementia, we all have our own individual lives, preferences and routines and this is exactly the same for those living under the dementia umbrella. Our clients all like to live their own life, with the aid of one of our carers just to help them manage with 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 have to be quite flexible and able to think on their feet to deal with anything that might occur. 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 sun downing, ‘wandering’ or, to give it our preferred term, ‘walking with a purpose’ as this is usually the case, medication and nutrition. Our support for dementia carers also offers an invaluable interactive element in our own ‘Dementia Experience Room’ to help the carers feel what a client living with dementia may experience. Training also focuses on various other ways to support someone living with dementia, such as using music, validation, reminiscence and other therapies that people have tried. We cover a broad range of subjects to equip our carers with a solid understanding of how to care for and deal with the challenges dementia can bring.

Dementia Pledge

We are signed up to the Dementia Pledge. It shows that we fully understand the needs of people living with dementia. As well as our carers, we also ask all head office staff to attend the Dementia Friends Project run by the Alzheimer’s Society. This enables everyone on our team, not just our carers, to gain a greater understanding of this complex condition which affects a large number of our clients.
