There are about 820,000 people in the UK with dementia (Alzheimer’s Research Trust 2010). Some will be people living with an undiagnosed dementia. The longer a person lives the higher the risk of developing a type of dementia.
If you are struggling to care for a loved one at home with dementia, it is important to know you are not alone. Caring for someone with dementia takes a great deal of patience, empathy, and love, particularly as memory loss progresses.
Careful Care has a dedicated training programme for all its carers to train for the NCFE (National Council for Further Education) level 2 Diploma in dementia. We place great importance on training our staff, providing carers with the tools to do their job – knowledge and skills, is essential for carers to be able to carry out the premier service that we do offer our service users. This training ensures our carers have the recognised skills to work with our service users suffering from dementia. Careful Care and its carers understand the struggles and challenges that accompany caring for a loved one and will provide a service that also supports the family members.
The services provided by Careful Care will enable your loved one to remain at home, in familiar surroundings, for as long as possible, providing routine, familiarity and maximising independence. Careful Care’s approach of encouragement and assistance helps family members cope with the challenges of dementia. Our carers can provide assistance with establishing a regular routine and restoring the simple pleasures of life in familiar surroundings, which remains the best non-medical treatment for dementia.
Careful Care can be your trusted solution to maintaining and enhancing your elderly loved one’s quality of life. Please contact us if you believe we can help you.
