Those who suffer from the later stages of Dementia can be concerned about turning to Dementia care services for support. At Verina Daly Care, we offer flexible home care (including Dementia care) which can benefit the individual by letting them stay in the comfort of their own home.
It’s important to consider the benefits of home care before rushing into a decision. So, below are a few major reasons why home care may be suitable for your friend or family member.
Keeping Their Independence
We understand how intrusive it is for someone else to be in your home for more than a few hours at one time. However, our staff are trained to be there when you need them to be, and unintrusive when you don’t.
Your friend or family member shouldn’t feel embarrassed for any reason. We are simply there to lend a hand with their daily tasks, keeping them as calm as they can be whilst being a friend.
1-2-1 Bespoke Care
Families often choose Live-In Care Services as an alternative to a residential care home due to the amount of one-to-one bespoke care that we provide. Which can mean being there for them 24/7.
We pride ourselves on the specialist care that we can provide our clients. We understand that with Dementia comes a few behaviour changes that can seem out of character, and we can be there to support that.
Dementia care is not only for people who have been diagnosed with the disease – it’s also an excellent option for family members or friends who want to offer support and love but cannot commit to 24-hour care. It gives both sides a breather and time to relax, which we all need now and then.
A Familiar and Comfortable Environment
85% of people with Dementia care would prefer to remain at home because they feel much happier and settled.
Being at home in their own surroundings allows your loved one to continue doing their favourite activities, as well as tactile activities like painting, pottery and knitting to help keep their minds stimulated.
They will also be surrounded by all their memories. This can remind them of friends and family and the fun times they have shared – keeping them used to more and more different faces. Even being surrounded by similar smells, like washing powders, the food they like to cook, and perfumes can trigger memories and make them feel much calmer than being in a care home.
Our specialist care can help your loved ones from the comfort of their own home, where they feel most comfortable and happy.
Friendship and Reliability
Even though living at home may seem isolating and lonely, this is easy to fix. Companionship can improve overall health and the quality of life. With our use of companionship services, they (or a family member) can arrange times to suit so that they can do what they love, with our added support.
Being able to stay with their loved ones at home also means that they have someone they know to be there for them as well. We want to allow clients, especially those who require Dementia care, to be as comfortable as possible.
We are always there for our clients, both physically and emotionally.
Keeping Their Regular Routines
If daily activities such as cooking, cleaning, washing up and planning appointments are becoming too much to manage, then it’s a real benefit to look at our home care options. They are completely flexible to all your needs, such as our short care visits which are ideal for those who need that extra bit of help.
In-home dementia care gives the opportunity to continue with daily chores. This can help to keep them busy, maintaining normality and giving them something to do around the house. Many people who require Dementia care feel proud once they have achieved even the smallest of tasks. We are there to provide a helping hand in getting them to that stage.
