FAQs

1. What signs should I look out for that might indicate a loved one is experiencing dementia symptoms?

Early signs of dementia can vary greatly but often include memory problems, difficulty concentrating, and struggling to carry out familiar daily tasks. Changes in mood and confusion in familiar environments are also indicators. At Home Instead, we offer guidance on navigating these early signs and help in establishing a daily care routine that can aid in maintaining a level of independence for your loved one.

2. Can dementia symptoms be reversed or improved with the right care?

Currently, there is no cure for dementia. However, with the correct care strategy in place, it is possible to slow down the progression of symptoms and help maintain a better quality of life for a longer period. Home Instead focuses on a relationship-centred approach that prioritises the individual’s wellbeing, enhancing their physical strength and encouraging engaging and mind-stimulating activities to enrich their daily experiences.
