When a person is suffering from dementia they can often find life frustrating or confusing. And naturally, their loved ones want to do all they can to help. But caring for a person with dementia can be incredibly challenging. That’s where we are here to provide the support you need.
We offer specialist care for people who have dementia. With modern facilities and highly-skilled staff we are able to care for a wide range of needs. We ensure that each resident’s physical requirements are met but also provide a warm, caring environment where we can focus on their emotional needs too. This not only provides the best possible quality of life for the resident but also gives their family the peace of mind that their loved one is comfortable and well cared for.
What are the Symptoms of Dementia?
The symptoms of dementia may include the following:
- Loss of memory – this particularly affects short-term memory, for example forgetting what happened earlier in the day, not being able to recall conversations, being repetitive or forgetting the way home from the shops. Long-term memory is usually still quite good.
- Mood changes – people with dementia may be withdrawn, sad, frightened or angry about what is happening to them.
- Communication problems – including problems finding the right words for things, for example describing the function of an item instead of naming it.
In the later stages of dementia, the person affected may have problems carrying out everyday tasks and will become increasingly dependent on other people. The homes within our group that provide care for people with dementia are:
