As a family coping with Mums vascular dementia was becoming increasingly difficult. Dad had managed very well but at 88 the strain was becoming too much. My Sister and I had broached the subject of carers with both Mum and Dad always with the same response. They didn't want strangers in their home and they didn't need any help. We found Home Instead and arranged a home visit. Mum was included in everything and both Mum and Dads specific requirements were discussed. CAREGivers were matched to Mum and once she got used to the idea everything has gone very well. We are safe in the knowledge she is up and dressed and had a nice chat and breakfast made every morning. Dad can nip out knowing Mum is safe and with someone they both trust. We have peace of mind that if there are any problems we are informed immediately and know Mum is in safe hands. Mum is a new person,we can't cure her but I believe Home Insteads care and support has made both Mum and Dads life much happier.
