At Home Instead North Devon, we understand that Alzheimer’s disease presents unique challenges for both individuals living with the condition and their carers. That’s why we’re here to provide the specialised care and support needed to enhance the quality of life for your loved ones in the comfort of their own homes.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people, often beginning with memory loss and leading to cognitive and behavioural changes. Our services are designed to address the distinct needs of individuals at various stages of Alzheimer’s.
Yes, it is possible to provide at-home care for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease. Taking care of a friend or family member who has dementia may be highly gratifying, but it can also be very challenging. It is crucial to take care of oneself. It’s essential to keep in mind to be kind, patient, and sympathetic while providing care for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s.
Compassionate in-home care provides familiarity and security, enabling individual needs to be addressed in a supportive and meaningful environment. In-home care includes a wide range of services provided in the home, rather than in a hospital or care community. It can allow a person with Alzheimer’s or other dementia to stay in his or her own home. It also can be of great assistance to caregivers.
To make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, careful planning and thought need to be devoted to developing and executing an effective, tailored care plan. Don’t forget, you don’t have to do it alone; professional support is available if needed.
Choosing in-home Alzheimer’s care can be a game-changer for families. Unlike institutional settings, home care allows your loved one to remain in familiar surroundings, reducing confusion and stress. Our 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 physical and emotional well-being. This can be delivered in hourly visits, longer companionship / respite based visits, or as live-in care.
Our care professionals receive comprehensive education and instruction, including specialised knowledge and training in Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia related care. They are highly experienced and have been rigorously evaluated for their backgrounds to guarantee the best calibre of care for your beloved family member.
