Dementia Care at home

Over 800,000 people in the UK have a form of dementia, and 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will have the condition. Almost everybody will know of someone with dementia.
It's important that the right support and care is available for those who have dementia, and for those who are living with or caring for a loved one with dementia. Through our reliable dementia care service, we support people with dementia to continue living at home safely. We also support their families through what is a tough time. Our staff are trained to deal with the challenging behaviours that may come with dementia progression with care, compassion and professionalism.

Dementia Care at home

How we help

Our dementia care workers receive specialist training for dementia care and dementia awareness, they understand how the condition affects the individual, their family, and those around them.

With our person centred approach, we ensure that we don’t just meet the needs of the individual we support but also the whole family.

We can help people to live well with dementia by helping with things like:

  • meaningful activities in the day
  • getting out and about in the community
  • personal home care
  • practical help at home
  • help with managing medicines
  • respite care services so that those caring for a loved one with dementia can take a break
  • emotional support for the whole family
