Our live-in carers are specifically trained to deal with the challenges that come when caring for a person with dementia. Our carers have experience in the many ways the condition can develop differently in people. Our dementia care plans are reviewed regularly to ensure that as the condition progresses, care needs are always being fully supported.
Quite often, a diagnosis of dementia comes after a period of time during which a loved one hasn’t quite been themselves. This may have been going on for some time, when a partner or family member have provided support and tried to help them to cope. But caring for someone with dementia can be very emotionally draining, time-consuming and tiring – it’s a labour of love that can become overwhelming.
The confusion and challenging behaviour experienced by those with dementia minimised when they are in familiar surroundings. Our live-in carers can extend the time that your loved one can stay at home in comfortable, familiar surroundings. They are trained to deal with the anger and frustration that can come with certain types of dementia and have experience in supporting daily tasks, personal hygiene and incontinence issues as such symptoms develop.
Whether you use Promedica24 for short-term respite care or for long-term dementia care at home, we’ll take the same professional approach to assessing a client’s care needs to live as fulfilling a life as possible in the comfort of their own home. We present a selection of companions based on our clients’ interests, personality and lifestyle, you then choose the most suitable fit. You can keep the same carer for up to three months at a time before they take a break, they will then alternate with another carer, just as suitable as the first.
I must say it was lovely to have some extra companionship. I’d devoted all of my time and attention to taking care of John so having someone else to take the pressure off me was a huge relief.
