Whether you live in Braintree, Acton, Alphamstone, Coggeshall, Tiptree and surrounding areas or any of the surrounding areas, we have local Care Professionals available to support you with Dementia Care.
We understand that watching someone close with dementia can be a challenging and concerning experience.
Naturally, we want to help and assist anyone we see having difficulties, but without the right help and information, it can become a little overwhelming as to where to start first.
With conditions such as dementia, it can be challenging to understand what is happening, and as dementia progresses, you may notice all sorts of changes in your loved one’s behaviour.
Things such as memory loss, changes in actions, decline in socialising or activities, difficulties staying nourished, hydrated and keeping healthy.
Although there are common symptoms, dementia affects everyone differently and being a full-time carer can sometimes be very challenging.
It’s common for family or friends who are carers to feel guilty for wanting to enjoy their life outside of the role of being a carer
We know that having the right dementia care and support put in place allows both you and your loved one to enjoy a higher quality of life.
We understand that finding the right care for your loved one can become quite an overwhelming experience; that’s why we’re here to help.
Home Instead Braintree is a little different to other care providers, we take the time to understand both you and the person with dementia and build a plan around your requirements.
All of our care is person-centred. This means that care is based on the needs of the individual rather than the service.
We get to know exactly what is required and carefully match a Care Professional with your loved one to ensure everyone is happy and that they get the best dementia care possible.
Matching our Care Professionals with our clients has had an evident effect on improving the quality of life and health outcomes for individuals living with dementia.
Home Instead created a unique dementia training programme that is accredited by City & Guilds, and a minimum of 10% of our Care Professionals must achieve this qualification.
Once Care Professionals complete this course, they are equipped with a good foundation of knowledge, methods and strategies, allowing them to provide the highest quality of care to anyone living with dementia, as well as providing solutions and seeking out further advice as and when required.
Having a Care Professional is like having a true companion, someone you can completely trust that will go above and beyond to help your loved one communicate better, increase their confidence, keep active and stay safe and shielded at home for as long as possible.
