What is Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care?

Care for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia needs to be tailored to the individual. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to supporting patients and their families when dealing with this debilitating condition. From the moment of diagnosis, there are many questions to be asked and answered, plus it is difficult to determine from the outset just how the illness will progress, which is why we work closely with everyone concerned to maximise patient safety, as well as their mental and physical wellbeing.

What we do know is that Alzheimer’s and the range of dementia conditions can cause the patient to behave in unpredictable ways. They may say or do things that are entirely out of character and the patient’s frustration with their unfamiliar way of behaving causes anxiety and apprehension in the family members caring for them. It is our aim to provide expert care that minimises the tension and fear for both patient and their family carers, and raises the quality of life of everyone involved.

A Professional Care Assessment

We send one of our experts in Alzheimer’s and dementia care to your home where they can assess any changes that need to be made to ensure the person’s safety. We also discuss putting a daily routine in place that is creative and flexible, whilst still allowing the individual every opportunity to enjoy the kind of spontaneous moments that everyone experiences as part of life.

Our carers also keep abreast of all new medical developments in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and dementia and in therapeutic approaches, such as the important role that music can play in the improving the mood and memory of a person with the condition. It is extremely important that our professional carers keep up-to-date in order to deliver the best service possible to our clients and we take it very seriously.

A Comprehensive Care Package

Care For Me’s comprehensive Alzheimer’s and dementia care services include every possible aspect of care for these conditions. The assigned carer will continuously assess the client’s condition and routines. We are also aware that continuity of care is important and that it is preferable for the client to receive care from the same person on a regular basis.

The carer is also there to provide companionship and assist with managing the prescribed medication. Managing personal hygiene, bathing and toileting is another aspect of the carer’s job and this is an important part of ensuring the client maintains their personal dignity. Our carers are also there to assist with feeding and if there are mobility problems, we can take care of that, as well as any physical problems, such as wound care. And, we are here to provide respite care so that the family carer or carers can have a break.
