Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia
Dementia is a disorientating condition and being moved away from home can be a traumatic experience. A live-in carer is there to help.
If a member of your family has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, Consultus is fully aware how this can impact the extended family. Our skilled live-in carers offer expert care assistance 24/7 to help people at all stages of dementia.
- have a good understanding of the different ways in which dementia can manifest itself; including loss of memory, confusion, and problems with speech, communication and understanding
- are familiar with the challenges faced everyday by the dementia sufferer and by their family and friends
- recognise that familiarity and continuity are particularly beneficial to people with dementia and so encourage their clients to adopt a daily routine
- ensure that each client, irrespective of their condition, feels valued, respected and safe, and is able to help them make the most of their lives.
Wherever possible, we try to arrange for a rotation of regular carers to look after a client with dementia, to minimise disruption and encourage a calming environment. To find out more, call 01732 355 231 to speak to one of our Care Consultants, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
