At Home  Dementia Care Options

Hourly visits for Dementia Care

Our Care Professionals can visit your home to provide personalised care for one to a few hours at a time. This option is perfect for those who appreciate companionship and wish to remain active in their community. The flexibility of visiting care allows our Care Professionals to offer regular scheduled support during critical times of the day, such as mealtimes, getting up and ready for the day or evenings.

Live-in Dementia Care

For those requiring more extensive support, live-in care is an excellent alternative to moving to residential facilities. Our Live-In Care Professional lives with you in a private room within your home, providing care which we can tailor specifically to your preferred schedule. This option benefits from one-to-one care and ensures care continuity, in a familiar environment and surroundings.

Advantages of Dementia Care at home

Choosing home care allows for a relationship-centred approach, where our same Care Professional lives with you or visits regularly and can offer:

– Ensured safety and comfort at home

As the condition progresses, recognising changes in behaviour, memory, and physical health can guide the decision to seek professional care. Our compassionate approach ensures that both you and your loved one can enjoy a better quality of life, starting with even a few hours of expert support each week, can help to make the journey easier and avoid reaching crisis point.
