Dementia can have a significant impact on a person’s daily life, including how well someone can function in their home. Memory problems and the ability to co-ordinate and interpret the home environment can cause safety issues and frustration.
Everyone has their own unique life story. We understand that your life experiences shape you as an individual and knowing this helps us to understand who you are and how best for us to support your care needs.
We know that individuals with dementia can experience problems with communication and memory loss, which means that sometimes you may need help to communicate what is important and we can help with strategies to help you and your family manage this.
Our life experiences shape us as individuals, and we know that Dementia can have a significant impact on a person’s daily life. This can include how well they function in their home, along with memory problems and the ability to co-ordinate and interpret the home environment, and this can cause safety issues and frustrations. We will help you to understand who you are as a person. We know that everyone we care for who is living with Dementia can live well and we will help to support you in doing so.
People with dementia may experience problems with eating and drinking. We can help if they forget to eat or drink, experience difficulties preparing food or drinks, have difficulty recognising food items, or have a change in appetite or taste.
Eating a healthy and balanced diet is important for a person’s physical and mental health. Not eating and drinking enough can increase the risk of dehydration, weight loss, a urinary tract infection and constipation. These health problems can be particularly problematic for someone with dementia as they can increase confusion and the risks of delirium, and sometimes make the symptoms of dementia worse.
We can certainly help you. All our care and office staff are Dementia Friends and one of our Managers is also a Dementia Champion, leading/helping with local community developments.
