Alzheimer's & Dementia Care in Maida Vale
We provide outstanding dementia care to support people with dementia to live a happy, safe and shielded life in the comfort of their home.
Whether you live in Southwark, Westminster, Pimlico, Marylebone, St John's Wood, Barbican or any of our surrounding areas in Central London, we have local CAREGivers available to support you and your loved one.
At Home Instead Westminster, we understand that watching someone close have difficulties with dementia can be an upsetting and concerning experience. Naturally, we want to help and assist anyone we see having difficulties, but without the right help and information, it can become a little overwhelming as to where to start first.
With conditions such as dementia, it can be challenging to understand what is happening, and as dementia progresses, you may notice all sorts of changes in your loved one's behaviour. Differences such as memory loss, changes in actions, decline in socialising or activities, difficulties staying nourished, hydrated and keeping healthy.
Although there are common symptoms, dementia affects everyone differently and being a full-time carer can sometimes be very challenging. It's common for family or friends who are carers to feel guilty for wanting to enjoy their life outside of the role of being a carer, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Additional support from CAREGivers enables you and your loved one to enjoy a higher quality of life.
What is Alzheimer's & Dementia Care at Home?
Dementia Care at Home is where a CAREGiver comes to the house to provide care and support for someone who is living with dementia. It enables people with dementia to stay settled and safe at home in comfortable and familiar surroundings.
Activities our CAREGivers help with could include:
- Helping the person stay calm and oriented in their home.
- Making dressing and personal care easier.
- Talking and communicating with the person.
- Helping with memory loss.
- Managing behaviour and sleeping problems.
- Encouraging activities that are both stimulating and enjoyable.
