Dementia is a condition that is becoming increasingly widespread in today’s society. Approximately 250,000 people in the UK develop dementia each year. Alzheimer’s is the most common type of dementia, affecting 62 percent of those diagnosed.
The symptoms of Dementia begin with memory loss, from forgetting people’s names to what they are planning on doing. This understandably leads to frustration and an overwhelming sense of being confused.
Here at Wellbeing Homecare it is our aim to keep people in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible. Familiarity and regular routines are crucial to reducing distress of those with dementia. Therefore receiving consistent support in a familiar safe environment, from a trained caregiver is best when possible to do so.
Research shows that cognitive stimulation, exercise and a healthy diet has a positive impact on those with dementia. We work with our service users to make sure they are receiving the best care as well as meeting their personal preferences.
