‘My 85 year old mother has lived alone since my dad passed away a couple of years ago, Mum was always a cheerful and very active lady. Lately however, she is becoming increasingly confused, and last week she got lost on the way to her local post office! I’m very concerned about her’.
Unfortunately the growing epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia does not show any signs of slowing down. According to the Alzheimer’s Society over 800,000 people in the UK have been diagnosed with the disease; in addition to this only 44% of those who have dementia have received a diagnosis. Although there is currently no cure for the disease, there is quality care at home.
Home Instead Sheffield provides quality, at home dementia care services, backed by advanced research and CAREGiver education. The dementia care we provide in Sheffield focuses on the importance of creating familiarity and establishing a regular routine, which is why clients receive the same CAREGivers for each and every visit, at times suitable for them.
There are lots of symptoms and behaviours that can be associated with Alzheimer’s or dementia, which is why Home Instead Sheffield develops care packages with clients and their families; this ensures the development of a flexible and tailored care plan which is useful when meeting the individuals needs of the client.
CAREGivers can provide assistance with enhancing and restoring the simple pleasures of life, such as a walk in the park, a ride in the car to get ice cream or spending time in the garden.
