Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

On 30th May 2019 Scott Maloney from the Motor Neurone Disease Association kindly visited the Home Instead office to present key information and to support Home Instead CAREGivers and the Clients family. The purpose was for all concerned to learn more about the disease to enable our CAREGiver to support our client with the best possible care. Recently, one of our clients was diagnosed with MND so all of her team came in to hear Scott’s presentation. Our clients Daughter Karin was also present. This was of huge benefit to all involved, where we will remain in touch with Scott throughout this journey. Thank you to Scott for giving up his valuable time.

On 29th May 2019 Home Instead office team members Kelly Mennim and Lisa Goody visited the Venton Centre in Northampton, also present were CAREGiver’s Jade and Corrina who supported the Bake-Off event. Our team met with clients who use the services of the day centre and also the wonderful staff who work at the Venton Centre. Attending the centre were some of our own clients who seemed to be enjoying themselves! This is the second donation Home Instead have made to the Day Centre, where we remain in touch with the Care Manager Vicky Denney and her team, working together to support clients who use both Home Instead and the services of Age UK to tackle loneliness and provide a safe and fun environment. On this occasion, Staff & Caregiver’s from Home Instead raised £200 by holding a Bake Off in the office, where baked cakes were sold in a raffle, clients were also invited to the event. This donation will go towards a day trip for the clients who access the Day Centre regularly. The Venton Centre is a purpose-built unit for day care and takes clients in from Northamptonshire. The Centre Manager and her team run a wide range of activities and events, ensuring that their clients get the best out of their day. Clients participate in seated exercise classes and arts and crafts. On site there is also a Hairdresser, Toenail cutting service and facilities for a bath or a shower.

Statistics from the Alzheimer's Society show that there are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over a million by 2025. This will soar to two million by 2051. Home Instead Northampton run internal courses for all their CAREGivers to give them a better understanding how to help and support their clients, who are living with this disease. This programme talks not only about what dementia is but also the background of how it was discovered and named. Our training programme is providing our CAREGivers with the necessary tools and knowledge to get a great in-site and think ‘outside’ the box when client displays certain behaviours. The training also has some great activities for CAREGivers to participate in and to experience briefly how someone living with dementia feels and the impact it may have on them and their families around them. Our courses are on-going and are run in blocks of 3-hours over a 3-week period. Our Dementia training is City and Guilds accredited meaning it is a recognised Certificate. We also offer a shorter version of the course that is more suitable for family members who are supporting a loved one. The course offers practical solutions and diversions to difficult moments when supporting with Alzheimer’s. If you need any help or advice or would like to register your interest in our training programme, then please contact our office on 01604 211190 where someone will be at hand to help.
Deaf Awareness Week aims to promote the positive aspects of deafness, promote social inclusion and raise awareness of the huge range of local organisations that support deaf people and their family and friends. If your hearing isn't what it used to be, you are not alone! One in six people in the UK has hearing loss or is deaf, and more and more people are getting the help they need to hear better. Hearing loss usually happens gradually, so you may not notice it at first. If you're losing your hearing and struggling to communicate, you may find that your quality of life is affected? Hearing aids and other forms of management can help you to regain your confidence New evidence highlights that hearing loss increases the risk or impact of various other long-term conditions. At the same time, because many health conditions are associated with ageing, they are likely to occur alongside hearing loss. Research shows that hearing loss doubles the risk of developing depression and increases the risk of anxiety and other mental health issues - although hearing aids reduce these risks. There's also increasing evidence to show a strong link between hearing loss and dementia. With mild hearing loss, the risk of developing dementia doubles, with moderate hearing loss the risk is three times as much, while with severe hearing loss the risk is five times. Research has shown a link between any type of diabetes and hearing loss. There's also evidence that hearing loss is linked to cardiovascular disease, stroke and obesity. If you think you may have hearing loss, make an appointment with your GP as this can be the first steps to getting a diagnosis and the help you need to manage your condition. They will be also be able to tell you what is involved at every step of making your hearing better.
