Live-in care empowers those with dementia to lead as fulfilling a life as possible.
With the right care and attention, those living with a form of dementia can have the opportunity to continue to live their life to the fullest – continuing with their favourite activities, remaining in their own home, and enjoying time with their friends and family.
Dementia care is a specialist support system which is designed to help a person with dementia to manage the symptoms – it is provided by carers who are experienced and trained in caring for someone with dementia.
Dementia care refers to caring for all conditions defined as dementia – Common types include Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and Mixed dementia – which is a combination of two types of dementia. It covers care for these conditions at all stages – from the early stages when people experience difficulty concentrating, or finding the right words in conversation, to the later stages, when a person with dementia may have a tendency to wander and become lost, or find it difficult to eat.
Specialist dementia care is practical and beneficial to those living with dementia, in whatever stages of dementia, as it provides targeted assistance in the form of activities and therapies such as reminiscence therapy, dietary adjustments, physical activity and support for challenging behavior and sun-downing.
