When you discover that yourself or a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's, it can become difficult to prepare for the future. You will want to ensure that the correct care is available when you need it and that you can remain feeling confident living within your own home.
We understand that it may become difficult working with dementia patients. Dementia and Alzheimer's disease can cause the sufferer to become confused and forgetful. So it is important to remain within familiar surroundings for as long as possible. It can become difficult to undertake easy tasks such as getting dressed or preparing food. This can lead to a person feeling vulnerable and in need of reassurance.
Caring for dementia patients
Companions of London will introduce you to experienced home workers who are fully trained in dealing with people who suffer from Alzheimer's or dementia. You may not know how to deal with someone with dementia. Our care providing staff can help make their lives, and the lives of the family around them easier to manage.
You can arrange for your carer to visit you as little or as often as you require. If you feel that your condition is getting more severe, you can adjust our services accordingly. Our dementia home help staff can help you or a loved one with the following:
- Help getting dressed
- Preparing meals
- Social activities to improve memory
- Bathing and personal care
- Shopping and handling money
- Contacting doctors or support services on your behalf
People with dementia often forget to look after themselves as well as they did before they developed the disease. It is important that they remain fit and healthy as possible to encourage independence. Our home care staff will ensure that the person that we care for eats a balanced diet and gets regular exercise.
