Being diagnosed with dementia can come as a shock. It can be a worrying and upsetting time - not only for the sufferer, but for those close to them - and everyone affected needs a great deal of reassurance and support.
At Direct Health we understand that when someone finds that their mental abilities are declining, they feel vulnerable. We also understand that taking care of someone you know and love who is suffering from dementia can be very stressful and upsetting – particularly if, as in most cases, they don’t even realise they actually have the condition.
Our Care and Support Workers are a vital lifeline to help those with dementia to live as independently as possible whilst retaining their sense of identity and self-respect. They are also invaluable to family and friends for much needed support and respite.
The National Dementia Strategy
Any kind of successful home support relies on careful and thorough preparation and planning and this is particularly true of support for people with dementia and their carers. We work closely with the customer and their carers to create an individually tailored care plan that can be updated in line with changing and fluctuating needs. Whether the requirement is for frequent visits to simply check that everything is OK, or for short or extended periods to give carers a much needed break, our services place the needs, wishes and aspirations of the customer at the heart of the care and support process.
In times of great uncertainly, we offer continuity, reliability and flexibility of response that helps to give back choice and control to the customer.
Direct Health has Care and Support Workers available who are qualified and experienced to deal with all forms and stages of dementia including Alzheimer's Disease.
