ALZHEIMER’S CARE, IN YOUR OWN HOME

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s comes with uncertainty and fear. Early symptoms may be intermittent and manageable at home, but in the back of your mind, you may be wondering what happens when the time comes when you need more support. Our live-in care service can help provide the care and support you may need, in your own home.

With Alzheimer’s care at home, you’ll be able to access the right level of care at the right time. We’ll make sure you’re fully involved in making key decisions about your daily routine, your healthcare and the things you’re able to do for yourself. And as your situation changes, we’ll keep pace with your needs so you can stay at home for longer.

Our compassionate caregivers offer comfort, support and practical assistance, leaving you free to enjoy as much quality time with family and friends as possible. Being able to stay within the comfort of your own home whilst receiving Alzheimer’s care can make a huge difference to quality of life.

Support with symptoms

Support with symptoms

People affected by Alzheimers will experience a vast range of symptoms that can be confusing and frightening, so ensuring that you or your loved one has a bespoke care plan, tailored around the specific symptoms is important. Our care package is completely customisable to your requirements.

Consistency

Consistency

Consistency is key, especially when it comes to caring for Alzheimer’s. Moving someone who has been diagnosed with this illness into an unfamiliar environment such as a residential care home, can have a really negative effect. Live-in care can help to avoid the distress, confusion and discomfort that moving to a care home can cause.

How We Can Help With Alzheimer’s Symptoms

There are many symptoms that someone diagnosed with Alzheimer’s can experience, so it’s really important that a bespoke care plan is created so that the person diagnosed receives the right level of care and support. Here are a few ways in which we can help with some of the symptoms you or a loved one may experience.

Memory Loss

+
-

We’ll help to create memory boxes and scrapboxes which feature photographs and other sentimental items that can help to stimulate memories. We’ll also be on hand to ensure that no daily tasks such as putting the bin out, taking medication or taking your dog for a walk are missed.

Social Withdrawal

+
-

We’ll support you in maintaining an active social life with your friends and ensuring that you can continue to enjoy your hobbies and interests. Your live-in carer will help you to attend social clubs, host family and friends at your house or head out to visit them. We’ll help you to continue making the most of your life.

Behaviour Changes

+
-

Over time, Alzheimers affects the brain and its functions and as such, this results in behaviour changes. One to one live-in care support allows you to truly get to know your carer and build a relationship and bond, ensuring that shock or anger at any behavioural changes are kept to a minimum.

Confusion

+
-

People diagnosed with Alzheimers can often be confused by the time, place and what they should be doing at any one time. This can be really frightening to experience. We help to minimise this by helping with calendar reminders and providing assistance at all times to provide a sense of comfort.

Social Interaction Struggles

+
-

It can often be a struggle to interact with other people when you have Alzheimers. All our live-in carers are friendly, compassionate, enthusiastic and full of personality. They’re always there to have a nice cuppa with or to help you with maintaining your existing social circles.

Basic Activities

+
-

Understandably, people with Alzheimers can struggle to carry out daily tasks that they once could. Our carers are on hand to help around the home too, from prepping your meals and washing the dishes through to filling out prescription forms and vacuuming.

Alzheimer’s Care FAQ’s

How do you care for someone with Alzheimer’s?

+
-

We feel it’s important that someone diagnosed with Alzheimer’s receives expert, specialist care, preferably within the comfort of their own home. But depending on the type of care someone with Alzheimer’s may receive, expert care may not always be on hand to help. Here are some tips for families of people with Alzheimer’s to help you care for your loved ones.

  • Keeping a routine is important, so try to maintain a sense of normality by bathing, dressing and eating at the same time every day.
  • Encourage your loved one to maintain to-do lists and write all appointments and events in a calendar or notebook.
  • Plan activities for your loved one to enjoy and try to do them at the same time everyday.
  • Buy loose-fitting, comfortable and easy to put on clothing for them to wear. Avoid shoelaces, buttons or buckles.
  • Buy them a sturdy shower chair for use when cleaning. Also encourage your loved one to do as much as possible when bathing.
  • Always be gentle and respectful, informing them step by step, what you are about to do when helping them with any activities such as bathing or getting dressed
