At Home Instead Fareham & Gosport, we understand that living with Alzheimer’s presents unique challenges for those living with the condition, their loved ones and their Care Professionals. That’s why we’re here to provide the specialised care and support needed to maintain the quality of life for your loved ones in the place they know best: home.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people, often beginning with memory loss and leading to other cognitive and behavioural changes over time. Our experience and our expertly trained Care Professionals enable us to effectively support our clients as their needs evolve over time.
Yes, it is possible to provide at-home care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease. Compassionate in-home care delivered by a familiar team of Care Professionals provides security and continuity, enabling individual clients needs to be met in the place they feel most comfortable.
In-home care includes a wide range of services provided in the home, rather than in a residential care community. It can allow a person with Alzheimer’s or other dementia to stay in his or her own home; their safe place.
To make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, careful planning and thought need to be devoted to developing and delivering an effective, person centred care plan. Don’t forget, you don’t have to do it alone; professional support is available if needed.
Choosing Alzheimer’s care at home can be a game-changer for families. Unlike residential care settings, home care allows your loved one to remain in familiar surroundings, reducing confusion and stress. Our professional care professionals are dedicated to providing personalised, one-on-one care that promotes comfort, safety, and independence.
Our approach is person-centred, ensuring that care plans are tailored to individual needs and preferences. We recognise the importance of building trust and rapport with both the person living with Alzheimer’s and their families. Our care professionals are not just trained professionals; they’re compassionate companions who genuinely care.
Our comprehensive Alzheimer’s care services cover a wide range of needs, including personal care assistance, medication management, cognitive stimulation, meal planning and preparation, transportation for medical appointments, companionship, and safety monitoring. These services are designed to provide holistic support, addressing both the physical and emotional well-being of our clients.
Our care professionals are trained by us and all of them have completed our unique City and Guilds accredited training programme. This programme is designed to enable them to effectively support and care for people living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. Many of them have cared for a loved one who lived with dementia and they all have been recruited on the basis of our “Mum Test”.
The “Mum Test “ is very simple; would we have this person care for our mum or loved one. We use this simple test because every client is someone’s mum, dad ,aunt, uncle or other loved one and we want to use the same test we would apply to our loved one to every client.
Our approach to dementia care is to understand how we can maintain independence at home. It’s about understanding how a client is compromised by their dementia and tailoring care and support to meet their very specific needs. We want to ensure that we do not undermine independence and deliver care and support that is specific to a client’s strengths and capabilities.
Of course those capabilities may change over time and we are adapting our care and support to those changing needs.
