Supporting people with Dementia

We’re passionate about providing the best possible care for our clients living with dementia.

We’re passionate about providing the best possible care for our clients living with dementia.

To mark the end of Dementia Action Week, we wanted to share some of the ways in which we support our clients affected by dementia.

As we do with all our clients, we work with our clients with dementia and their families from the outset of their journey with us to provide bespoke, person-centred care. The experience of living with dementia is different for everyone, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Our Care Professionals are versatile and adaptable, responding creatively and professionally to their clients’ varied needs. Whether it’s taking a client shopping when they’ve lost the confidence to go by themselves, spending time with them to allow their loved one to have a break, or helping with everyday tasks such as personal care or housekeeping that have become harder to manage without support, our Care Pros are there to help ensure their clients’ safety and happiness in the homes that they know and love. In addition, the continuity of care that we offer by ensuring that our clients see the same faces as much as possible is particularly important for those living with dementia.

Our registered manager, Liz, not only has a wealth of experience but can deliver City & Guilds assured dementia training to our Care Professionals. We recently spoke to two of our Care Pros, Tracy and Iris, who have gone through the training with Liz. They found the course useful and thought-provoking. Tracy mentioned that there were “lots of things that I learnt that I wouldn’t have thought about”, while Iris commented that she’d really appreciated meeting other Care Pros who are supporting clients living with dementia and hearing about their experiences.

Another way in which we try to go above and beyond for our clients living with dementia is by our involvement in community events. Both Liz and the Managing Director, Jon, have been involved in supporting local dementia groups over the years. If you’ve been following us on social or reading our blogs, you’ll also have seen our dementia-friendly matinees, which it has been a joy for us to host over the last few months with the Everyman Cinema in Salisbury.

Receiving a diagnosis of dementia is never easy and for families who are navigating all the challenges that a diagnosis brings, it can feel overwhelming at times. We understand that. But with the right support, it’s still possible to live well and happily with dementia and if you’d like to chat about how we can help with that, please do get in touch.
