Dementia care at home bringing back their sparkle!

Your time is the most important thing you can give to others. And for our clients, their CAREGiver's time may be most precious of all. 
That's why, at Home Instead, we believe in longer visits with each client- allowing CAREGivers and clients time to build stronger, closer relationships. It's differences like these that make all the difference.Instead of delivering one-size-fits-all solutions, we work closely with every family to understand their needs and to match them with one or many of our professional CAREGivers. 

Matt wrote to us about the care we provided for his mum, this gives a real account of the difference personalise care can bring to the client and the whole family…

“I wanted to drop you a line to commend a member of your staff for the exceptional companionship service she has provided to my mum, Maggie.

As you are aware mum receives 2 companionship visits per week from a lady called Wendy. Sadly, mum has advanced Alzheimer’s and has taken a real dip over recent weeks. Her outings with Wendy have been a real source of support not only to mum but the whole family during this difficult time.

As well as helping mum to maintain her dignity, her trips out with Wendy are one of the few pleasures left to mum these days. They massively enhance mum’s quality of life as well as providing my dad with some vital respite for 4 hours per week. 
The patience, compassion & care Wendy demonstrates when dealing with mum are a great testament to her as an individual and a positive reflection on your company. 
I have attached a picture of mum and Wendy on a recent trip out to Walkden Gardens. Mum looks happy and like her old self on here which again is a great reflection on Wendy and how comfortable mum feels in her presence.”

Many thanks, Matt (son of Maggie & Brian), Sale residents
