Care in the home, or domiciliary care, is becoming an increasingly popular choice for people suffering from Alzheimer’s as it encourages them to stay independent whilst receiving care in the familiarity and comfort of their own home. Allowing a family member to remain in a stable and consistent environment can reduce anxiety and upset. This can then provide help and peace of mind for you as a family, giving you the chance to take a break.
Home Instead Senior Care is the world’s leading home care company, and the only home care organisation in the UK with the City & Guilds accreditation for Dementia. We work together with our clients and their families to provide a tailor made service designed to stimulate and support our clients in their daily activities at home. Our CAREGivers are given the opportunity to undertake the City and Guild’s Dementia qualification, which ensures that they are confident caring for people living with Dementia. They will maintain a safe environment and provide nutritious meals, whilst also being able to:
- Manage changing behaviour
- Provide mind-stimulating activities
- Create social interaction
- Supervise daily activities
Our CAREGivers can also provide assistance with enhancing and restoring the simple pleasures of life, such as a walk in the park, a trip out in the car or spending time in the garden. These care activities are proven to maximise abilities and independence.
