Dementia

The term “dementia” is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions. these symptoms include:

  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Problems with speech and understanding
  • Visual hallucinations
  • Periods of being alert or drowsy
  • Becoming slower in their physical movements

 

Someone with dementia is likely to be involved in an accident at home, especially as the dementia progresses. This is because they have a reduced ability to react quickly.

However, we believe the place that suits elderly people with dementia best is in the safety and comfort of their own home, which they feel comfortable in and know very well, whilst receiving the best professional round the clock care

At Awarding Care we believe that no one should have to deal with the day to day challenges a dementia patient has to face with, on their own. Therefor we are here to provide the specialist care that is needed in the home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We provide carers with the correct skills and experience who specialize in dementia care, so you can put all of your trust into Awarding Care and their care staff, knowing your loved ones are being cared for professionally.

Our carers are also fully trained on how to complete a fully detailed care plan with the help of the resident, their family and friends. These plans will then be used all the time as they are there to help maintain the residents dignity as the dementia progresses, providing important information, which ranges from, how they like their cup of tea in the morning, to helping them take their medication.
