Supporting Dementia at home

Read our new whitepaper on supporting individuals with dementia at home

Supporting dementia at home requires a comprehensive approach that addresses the evolving needs of the individual as the disease progresses. Crafting a tailored care plan is paramount, involving input from healthcare professionals, caregivers, and the individual with dementia. This plan should encompass strategies for managing daily activities, addressing safety concerns, and promoting social engagement and mental stimulation. Additionally, understanding and managing the stages of dementia is essential. From the early stages characterised by mild memory loss to the later stages marked by profound cognitive and physical decline, caregivers must adapt their approach and support accordingly. By offering consistent care, emotional support, and access to appropriate resources, individuals with dementia can maintain a sense of dignity and quality of life while remaining in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
