Securing The Most Suitable Dementia Care
Even if you aren’t there to look after them yourself, you can still ensure that your loved one is care for as they struggle with dementia.
If you live far away from your friend or relative and they are suffering from dementia, it can be hard to know what to do. Home care will give them the best chance of living a full, independent life for years to come. Here’s what you can expect, and where you can find the best dementia care Essex has to offer.
Dementia sufferers need support
Living far away from a loved one can be worrying, especially in these trying times. If your friend or family member has dementia though, that worry can be even bigger. Living with dementia can be incredibly isolating and scary, and the COVID-19 crisis has seen many people’s sources of support vanish overnight. Gone are community clubs and a lot of other services – which leaves you bearing the brunt emotionally. That’s where home care comes in.
Finding the right care
Finding a good care provider is essential if you are going to help your loved one who is suffering from dementia. Fambridge Care are one of the leading providers of dementia care in Essex, and have really made a difference to people’s lives. Their carers are highly skilled and have undergone the necessary training to work with people with dementia. With their help, people can continue to live full lives with as much independence as possible.
Home care comes in all shapes and sizes, and can be personalised to suit the needs of each individual. Dementia is a hugely complex condition, and its severity can vary from person to person. Add to the mix that dementia sufferers could have other additional health concerns, and you have people who all have very different needs. Whether someone needs a few visits a week or they would benefit from live in care, the right level of care will make all the difference.
Allows them to stay in their own homes
As anyone who has spent time with a dementia sufferer knows, change can be very hard for them to accept, and old memories are still very fresh in their mind. It makes sense then, for someone with dementia to stay in their own home for as long as they can. They will be be surrounded with memories that they can still process, and while they may struggle with short-term memory retention their home will be somewhere they feel safe and secure.
Safety is a top priority
COVID-19 has totally changed the home care landscape. It can be a worry to entrust your loved one’s care to someone that you don’t know, especially when you are worried about them catching the virus. You can rest assured that at a trusted home care provider like Fambridge Care, all the necessary steps are being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Carers are taking extra care with hygiene, and they have the PPE they need to carry out their work safely.
