Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging; you only want the best treatment for them but you may not be able to achieve this on your own.

Your loved one might get distressed at the thought of going to a care home as it’s an unfamiliar environment with a different routine. Live-in care services are a more personable option for seniors who suffer from dementia, as they allow your relative to get the treatment they need without compromising their normal routine. Here are four great advantages of live-in care services for those with dementia:

1. Expert services

Our fully qualified team are able to treat dementia patients with great care and dignity. Dementia can often cause the patient to act unpredictably, but a well-trained team know how to combat this issue and prioritise the individual’s safety. It’s important to keep dementia patients constantly engaged so our activities are just as stimulating with home care services as they would be in a residential care home.

2. A familiar environment

The biggest advantage of care at home is that your relative can stay in their home while they receive treatment. A familiar environment can be comforting to those with dementia as relocation can be distressing, particularly if their condition has advanced.

3. Flexibility

Care homes can be quite clinical, with a strict schedule that occupants have to abide by. With at-home care, staff will adapt to a schedule and tailor their treatment to your loved one’s regular routine. They provide one-on-one care and will establish a good connection with their client.

4. Peace of mind

Care at home services are also a huge benefit to the patient’s family. They can feel reassured that their loved one is receiving dignified and quality treatment. Trust is one of our company’s core values and we seek to establish this with you and your elderly relative.
