What is Dementia?

Dementia is not a specific disease; it is a general term that refers to a decline in cognitive abilities that affects daily activities. People aged over 65 are at significantly higher risk of the condition, but it can also affect younger individuals. It is estimated that Alzheimer’s disease is responsible for 60-80% of all dementia cases. Vascular Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, Lewy Body, and other forms comprise the remaining 20-40%. Many suffering from Dementia, especially those over 75, develop mixed dementia. Mixed dementia is a combination of different types. The most common combination is Alzheimer’s disease and Vascular dementia.

Why choose Dementia Care at home?

Maintaining familiarity and routine is crucial when caring for someone who has dementia; no place is more familiar than your own home.

The prospect of leaving the familiar comforts of home behind for a care facility can be daunting for anyone, especially for those suffering from memory loss and confusion that is associated with Dementia.

With appropriate at-home support, it is possible to create a comprehensive condition-led care plan that aligns your loved one's daily routines with their unique needs.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Dementia is a syndrome that can be caused by diseases that affect the brain. Alzheimer’s is one of the diseases known to cause dementia.

Alzheimer’s disease is by far the most common cause of Dementia; it is responsible for 60-80% of all dementia cases.

High-quality condition-led support for individuals with dementia enhances their quality of life. Specialised Dementia care provides recipients with a vital layer of understanding, safety, and support.

Providing optimised care for people with dementia is crucial. It involves creating a safe and supportive environment that enables them to maintain their independence and dignity. Effective communication, patience, and empathy are vital skills that caregivers need to have. By understanding the person’s needs and preferences, caregivers can provide personalised care that enhances quality of life and promotes well-being.

If someone with Dementia experiences memory loss, behavioural changes, or struggles with daily tasks, it is essential to address these concerns promptly and consider Dementia Care at home.

Our Dementia care services adapt to the different stages of a dementia journey. In the early stages, individuals may require companionship and general household support. As dementia advances, we extend our services to provide more comprehensive support.

Regularly offering your support is recommended, as they could be too proud or not confident enough to ask when they need help. Always try to respect their dignity and promote their independence. Engaging in enjoyable activities with your loved one can improve their mood, reduce the risk of depression and anxiety, and decrease irritability.
At-home Dementia Care from a reputable homecare provider should also be considered; this can be essential in improving quality of life and minimising their rate of cognitive decline.

Before providing dementia care, our care professionals receive in-house dementia training that is City & Guilds Assured. This specialist training is aimed at providing an understanding of dementia, the stages of dementia, effective support methods, recognising symptoms and cognitive changes and improving communication techniques.

It is not always necessary for individuals with Dementia to give up their pets. Clarity Homecare can provide at-home Pet Care alongside Dementia Care if required. Many people in the early stages of Dementia can still care for their furry companion. The type of pet, however, should be carefully considered; a cat or a small, calm dog, for example, is far more suitable than a large, boisterous dog. Research indicates that owning pets can positively affect people with dementia.

If you have a loved one with dementia who is exhibiting aggressive behaviour, it may be time to consider specialist at-home Dementia Care from a reputable homecare provider. A suitable care provider can work alongside family members to implement strategies that have been proven to minimise aggression in those with dementia.

We have years of experience in assisting families caring for loved ones with Dementia at home. Our team of specialist Care Professionals receive in-house dementia training that is City & Guilds Assured. We understand the challenges of caring for someone with dementia.
