A diagnosis of dementia for you or a loved one can come as a shock. Even if you have been half expecting it, having to adjust to a life with dementia can be a worrying and upsetting time, and it can be especially hard for those close to you.
There are many care options, all of which can help improve their quality of life – but none are as flexible and as accommodating as home care. Live in care or visiting care for those living with dementia will enable you or a loved one to continue to remain at home, both in the early stages and late stages of the condition.
With the support of a visiting or live in carer a care plan is tailored entirely around the needs of the individual by a health care professional, ensuring you or a loved one can continue to make your own lifestyle choices whilst remaining in the comfort of familiar surroundings. By being given the option to stay in your own home with the provision of visiting care or live in care, you or a loved one will be free to welcome visitors, free to continue with your own routine, and free to live as independently as possible; the only difference is that you will be supported around the clock by an experienced, professionally dementia trained visiting or live in carer.
