Our Carers are specialists when dealing with Dementia
How We Help With Dementia Care
When dementia and caring for someone with dementia gets beyond the level at which hourly care can help, or the family carer needs a proper holiday, this is where live-in care comes in. Live-in care is the obvious alternative to a care home or a nursing home, especially for someone with dementia, for whom the disturbance and uprooting of moving to a care home can be miserable.
A live-in carer stays in her client’s house, and is trained to care for someone with dementia (we know the training is good, because the number of calls from carers for help and advice with dementia clients has fallen dramatically, since we made dementia training compulsory). The carer is there all day, to help his or her client to do the things she wants to do.
